“As meningitis is rare, families can feel alone in dealing with its impact. Meet-ups reduce isolation and offer face-to-face peer support to people affected by meningitis. We know that this opens up new avenues of friendship, and informs people regarding support available and tips on how they have overcome difficulties since being poorly.”
MRF offers support in the UK and Ireland for everyone living with bereavement following meningitis or coping with after effects. If you missed the event in Dublin, you can talk to Support Services by phoning the free Helpline, or using Live Chat on the website.
If you would like more details of other support services including the charity’s Befriending programme or how to join MRF for free visit our Support Services page.
