Network MESH is a thriving M.E. self-help group, aiming to provide mutual support and information to individuals and their families affected by ME/CFS within the West London area. MESH stands for “ME Self-Help”. M.E. is an abbreviation for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Many in the medical profession refer to the illness as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or CFS. Frequently, these terms are combined, as in ME/CFS or CFS/ME.
We are run entirely by people who have ME. We organise informal coffee meetings and other social gatherings, such as garden parties or museum visits, as well as events with speakers from the ME world.
As many of our members are severely ill and house-bound, our quarterly newsletter “Outreach“, this website and the chair’s group email list are an important part of our activities, allowing us to reach those who are too unwell to travel to our events.
We welcome as members anyone who is affected by M.E. or their carers.
