The Fibromyalgia Support Network of WA Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity run wholly by volunteers, nearly all of whom have Fibromyalgia.
Our aims include raising awareness or Fibromyalgia, sharing information about Fibromyalgia, and facilitating support networks for people with Fibromyalgia.
We have approximately 1300 members, and do not charge for that membership or for our newsletters.We run monthly meetings at the Melville Library. Most months we have a specialist guest speaker, and then a catch-up/chat time afterwards. They are on the first Thursday of every month.
There is also a growing list of social coffee meets in Perth, the suburbs, and the country. They are held monthly in Albany, Bicton, Bunbury, Geraldton, Gosnells, Mandurah, Rockingham, South Perth and Wanneroo. We also have a weekend coffee meet, in Kings Park.

It is important to note that the Fibromyalgia Support Network does not provide counseling services but rather facilitates networks for people to connect and create their own support. If you have any health concerns you should contact your health professional in the first instance.
