Internet Conference for Young People with CFS/ME

Announcing CFS-Y

There's a new group for young people with myalgic encephalomyelitis/ chronic fatigue syndrome on the Internet called CFS-Y.

Many adults have benefited tremendously from the friendships, information, and daily support their online support group has given them. And now kids & young adults can, too!

CFS-Y will connect young people all over the world with others who live with this illness. The discussion is moderated by a young person with CFS, and only registered members are able to read and write messages to the group.

To join:

  1. Send an e-mail message to and for your message type
