Family Support Group

In July 2021 Meningitis Centre Australia launched a nationwide family support group established by four volunteers who are mothers that have had direct experience with Meningitis, Meningococcal and related diseases.


Our first step towards this support group is a closed Facebook group which is a virtual forum for connection and support for survivors and families affected by Meningitis, Meningococcal, and other related diseases.

We warmly welcome our Australian based community to join our Facebook Group by visiting https://www.facebook.com/groups/1659660104227196.

When requesting to join, be prepared to complete the following questions:

  1. What is your connection or experience with Meningitis, Meningococcal or related diseases?
  2. What do you hope to get out of joining this group? 
  3. What state do you live in?
  4. Do you agree to abide by the rules of this group?

MCA are really excited about this initiative and hope that this forum provides the connection and support that we believe it will. Should you have any questions or feedback please be in touch with MCA CEO karenq@meningitis.org.au
