Support and resources

We have multiple resources to help with everyday life with MCAS and a growing events programme for people with MCAS which offers weekly community sessions for adults and parents/carers, weekly Qigong (a form of Tai Chi) sessions and not forgetting yoga. Check out our events section for more info.

If your life is at imminent risk, please call 999 for immediate help.

Weekly community zoom sessions

We are delighted to launch our weekly community zoom sessions for those living in the UK.

The sessions will run every Thursday from 7pm, starting on the 20th April 2023.

Our Community Champion volunteers George, Kay and Claire will be hosting the sessions which will be weekly, informal meetings that create an opportunity for people living with MCAS to connect with others, share stories and experiences and seek support from each other.

We will be running this session virtually through zoom, so feel free to join us to chat about all things MCAS!

Social media

Our Facebook support groups for adults who have MCAS and parents of children with MCAS are a great source of information and community with the opportunity to connect to others who may be experiencing a similar journey.

You can also follow us on FacebookInstagramTwitter and LinkedIn where we regularly share campaigns about MCAS, helping to explain what MCAS is and how it feels to experience living with MCAS. We are continually developing new resources to help others to understand more about MCAS, triggers, symptoms and the common difficulties often experienced in our community. These resources are shared on our social media accounts, so follow us for regular updates.

For more information about the support we could offer you, please send us an email.

You will find a range of wellbeing resources on our website here.

We are working towards offering a range of holistic programmes to improve the lives of anyone with MCAS. From supportive methods such as hypnotherapy, mindfulness and yoga to health coaching.
