Help a friend with ME/CFS

Happy Friends Laughing

If you know someone who lives with ME/CFS, your help and support can make an important difference to their lives.  


Ask them what would make things easier for them, and what support they would like. 

  • Perhaps prepare a meal, provide quiet company, help with housework or maintenance, or pay a bill.  

  • If you invite them to an event, consider how to reduce the energy required of them, provide a quiet space to rest, and be aware that they may need to cancel on the day if they are too unwell. 

  • Believe them. Learn about their experience and the illness. 


Remember to manage the support you give around your own needs.
