Avril: learning self management from people with M.E.
May 21, 2020
Avril, our Project Officer in Scotland, shares her thoughts on self-management in a new blog for Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland. She says:
"Normally I work on the Mentor M.E. project, training and supporting volunteer peer mentors and the people they support. Now I am also answering daily phone calls and emails on our new Crisis, Support and Advocacy service [...]
"I have learned such a lot while working here and would say that my knowledge of self management has really increased as a result. This is due to listening to people who really need to self manage to have any quality of life."
If you need support with self-management, or any other aspect of living with M.E., email us or call on 0117 927 9551 and we will do what we can to help.
