The ME Trust approach
The ME Trust is committed to a belief in ME as a very real biological illness. We fully support research into the biological causes of the illness and are currently encouraging our patients to sign up to the new BioBank research study. We aim to treat the physical symptoms of ME with medical advice and intervention, nursing care and physiotherapy. We also acknowledge that any long term illness can have psychological effects, and we therefore offer counselling, emotional support and spiritual direction for people who find that helpful. This is the model of whole person care which is fundamental to the activities of the ME Trust.
We are working on a series of short films intended to provide helpful information on different
aspects of caring and supporting people with ME/CFS and their families – please come back to this
page soon. In the meantime, these may be helpful.
