Mentor M.E.

What is Mentor M.E. and how can I get involved?

Action for M.E.'s Mentor M.E. project is growing mutual peer-support for M.E./CFS in Scotland.

Watch our short film and scroll down to find out more.


Get mentoring support

If you have M.E. or care for someone who does, do you think you could benefit from having a peer mentor? We have mentors in Scotland available to support you. As a mentee, you are matched to a peer mentor who can offer support and a listening ear, someone who can share their experiences and insights into living with or caring for someone with M.E.

“It’s so good to have someone to talk to when you have hit the very bottom. A mentor can support you to see the way back up.”

For more information, please contact Avril McLean, Mentor M.E. Project Worker, by email or call 07753 247099.


Be a volunteer mentor

If you have experience of M.E., could you consider providing mentoring to someone with the illness, supporting them to find their own solutions to challenges they may face? We are recruiting volunteer mentors in Scotland, with full training provided face-to-face and online, plus ongoing guidance and supervision.

“The best thing about being a mentor has been having someone to talk to about being ill without it all being about me."

For more information, please contact Avril McLean, Mentor M.E. Project Worker, by email or call 07753 247099.


Local M.E. support groups

Are you part of a local M.E. support group in Scotland? Are you interested in growing mutual peer-support in your community? Action for M.E. is flexible and ready to work with you and your group's needs. Our door is always open, and we will help if we can. Please contact Avril McLean, Mentor M.E. Project Worker, by email or call 07753 247099.


Mentor M.E. peer support network is a five-year Action for M.E. project, launched in 2016, and funded by the Scottish Government and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the Alliance) from the Transforming Self-Management in Scotland Fund.
