Following successful pilot events, we are planning future online support events. Please register your interest below and we will keep you updated about future events

Our mental health and emotional well-being are just as important as our physical health. In fact, it is impossible to talk about one without the other.

Meningitis affects people's mental health in many different ways, including high levels of stress and anxiety. 

Our recent coronavirus impact survey highlighted that as many as three-quarters of people who have had a meningitis experience struggle at some point with their mental health and emotional well-being.
