WE - a Community and ME

A condition such as ME presents not only a challenge to the patient who receives the diagnosis, nor only to the family where a child or partner contracts the illness. It tests the values and the fabric of a community. How does the community react?
The reactions and experiences describe how prepared or willing it is to overcome the challenges and support the patient with ME.

Invest in ME Research has a produced a small booklet giving an overview of how ME affects a community.
Thanks to funding from an Awards for All grant the charity has been able to have a number of copies printed.
