The ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia Self-Help Program is a non-profit organization offering a suite of low-cost and free online self-help courses, plus other resources for people affected by ME/CFS and fibromyalgia. Founded in 1998, it has conducted hundreds of self-help groups teaching thousands of people how to manage their illness.
We also provide articles, forms, worksheets and online books in the Library on this website, as well as an online self-study course at Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia and our founder's story at the Recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Our program was created by Bruce Campbell, PhD, who was the program's first Executive Director (1998-2014). Dr. Campbell is a recovered CFS patient who, before becoming ill, was a consultant to self-help programs for chronic illness at the Stanford University Medical School. In 2016, program leadership was assumed by Kris Nichols and Margaret Walker as Co-Executive Directors.
Jan Wolski, a licensed occupational therapist, is the Associate Director of the program. Our classes are led by volunteer moderators, all of whom are people with ME/CFS or fibromyalgia.
