About us

 

ME Auckland is a registered charity that provides essential support to people living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)) and related conditions including Long Covid. 


We would like to see every person with ME/CFS and related conditions, experience high quality health care and community support free, from stigma and discrimination.

ME/CFS significantly affects the ability to live a normal life, with episodic poor health and a number of associated conditions and experience stigma and misunderstanding that effects their overall mental health and wellbeing.


Many people are disadvantaged by the economic impact of the illness, along with low levels of understanding and diagnosis of, and treatment for
ME/CFS in the public health system. People with ME/CFS are physically isolated and their limited ability to complete daily tasks limits their ability to lobby and access services.


Most require support that ranges from mental health support, validation of their illness and illness management expertise to part time or even full day
to day care. Carers and family members are often on a similar journey of discovery to the person with ME/CFS and supporting them is also an essential part of our work.


People with ME/CFS cannot wait for a cure or universal validation; we deliver accessible services to those who need support now. 


Our services make a difference TODAY!
