you will become aware of national and
regional efforts on behalf of your illness or concern,
you will have access to community resources
and support systems,
you will learn about local professionals

you will learn about the most up-to-date
you will have the opportunity to take
part in any social action or political lobbying, in which the WWMEA decides
you will have a say regarding the activities
of the WWMEA.
We encourage visitors to come out to
support group meetings and find out what the WWMEA is all about.
New individuals are invited to attend a maximum of 3 meetings in order
to decide whether or not they wish to join the WWMEA. In order for
the WWMEA to operate efficiently, we must restrict our activities to those
persons who are members.
A self-help or support group is built
on the premise that very often those persons who are experiencing a difficulty
are the ones who know the most about their shared concern, and are therefore
the best persons to help each other solve the problems. When you
join an M.E. support group you can share how-to tips: what to do and what
not to do, what works and what does not. Most important, together
you can share experiences -- good, bad and indifferent. As a support
group grows in size, your information pool will grow bigger and you will
have access to more ideas, more people and more resources.
If you do not wish to become a member
at this time but would like to receive our newsletter, you may do so, however,
you will not receive any of the additional benefits of membership listed
An annual newsletter subscription costs:
(for Canadian mailing addresses),
(for U.S.A. mailing addresses), or
(for mailing addresses outside of Canada and the U.S.A.).
