    Hi guys

    As part of an ongoing initative by patients in the United Kingdom, in an attempt to override the psychiatric hold over ME Policy, we have created a grassroots campaign organisation entitled "Action Now". The idea is to create a base for campaigns that everyone can get involved in, from the bedbound to familes and friends.

    Present campaigns include a four page ME information leaflet to be distributed round doctors surgeries and door to door on awareness day as well as collaberations with Count Me In, raising funds for the Whittemore Peterson Institute plus other top notch campaigns.

    Everyone is welcome to join in, we have plenty of folks Stateside on board.

    Please join the following pages for more info and to submit ideas...

    The situation in the UK for ME patients is dire. I hope many people will help get involved in Action Now - involvement helps you feel better too!
