Action for M.E.’s new project in Scotland, Living and learning with M.E., will bring together people with M.E., as experts in their condition, to explore symptom management.

The project is funded by the Scottish Health and Social Care Alliance Impact Fund, and our aim is to build a knowledge base of lived experience that can be shared with others who are new to – or struggling with – M.E. We also hope to inform and influence the work of health and care professionals in Scotland.

We are looking for people with M.E. to take part in five free workshops from August to November 2015 in Falkirk, West Lothian and/or Edinburgh.

The purpose of these will be to:

  • use storytelling techniques      to explore you experience of M.E. in a supportive environment
  • identify any learning that      you would like to pass on, and learn about strategies that others are      using
  • learn about storytelling      techniques

Participants can also access individual coaching support to help you pass your learning onto other people with M.E.

The workshops will be facilitated by Michael Williams, who led our Storytelling project last year.

Based on learning from the workshops, we will produce a self-management resource for local support groups, individuals with M.E., carers and health care services. Participants will have a key role in shaping the resource and will receive a copy of the final publication

Please find below a pdf document giving more information about the project and a copy of the registration form (word doc).
