We are so glad that you have found your way to WellME

Whether you are a person with ME | CFS | Fibromyalgia related condition, or a carer, we know from our own experience that joining a support organisation can be a bit bewildering. This brief guide will help explain what WellME is all about and offer you a few options of how you can access the support we offer.

 

WellME is a registered charity that came together back in 1995. While support has always been central to everything WellME does, this has been delivered in a number of different ways over the years.

 

Currently the core of WellME’s support is facilitating members to meet and/or connect as well as providing information to help keep you informed.

MEET

 

Community groups (facilitated groups in which topics are nominated for discussion by members).
These are held monthly in Levin, Waikanae, Tawa, and Lower Hutt.

 

Coffee groups (informal catch ups where members are encouraged to discuss ‘what’s on top’ and to use each other’s experience and support).
Held monthly around the Wellington region.

 

The schedule for these can be found on our home page or our Facebook page and within our monthly committee email updates.

 

CONNECT

We are very aware that not everyone is well enough to get out for coffee or community groups – and it might not be your thing. We offer a range of other ways that you can connect with other members.

 

Workplace (our main social media tool) has been set up to provide a private online place for members to ‘chat’. There are a range of different ‘chats’ that you can join. 

Facebook closed group WellME also has a Facebook closed group used for sharing information, and chatting about highs and lows. Jump on Facebook and look it up at WellMe- support network, click here or use the link 'f' at top right hand corner of this website.

 

If you are unable to get out and about, we have a number of members who are able to give you a call for a chat. If you have specific questions or problems, this might be a chance to bounce some ideas around and see if together you can come up with some ideas to help. Our members are not counsellors or advocates, however, so if you need anything beyond a listening ear, they will point you in the direction of someone trained to help.  

  

INFORM

This here WellME website has been given a spruce up and is the main source of information about the organisation. As well as giving some background on WellME as an organisation, and its vision, there is a wealth of links to information.
 

Whether you are new to understanding ME | CFS | Fibromyalgia | related conditions or trying to keep up with what is new or useful, the amount of information can overwhelm. You will see that we have organised information under headings (resources/connections, educators, carers, health professionals, related conditions). You can trust that what is contained comes from credible sites and reflects current evidence in understanding these conditions. We have committed to keeping this site up to date.

 

We know that not everyone has access to a computer and to the internet. Please call us if there is specific information that you are wanting and we will arrange to send it out to you
