Please consider contacting the local and/or national media about ME Awareness Month

We would encourage Irish people to contact local and/or national media outlets in the coming weeks.

You could mention the Dr Speight talks if you thought it was appropriate .

Journalists and media outlets are looking for items to cover so can welcome approaches like this.
