We try to provide support for the Young People who have attended our Young People’s Weekends in person, or by phone, email or Facebook.
There is an active “CMT Kids” Facebook page, but this is a closed page, and your membership of it will need to be approved by Karin Rodgers – if you’d like to email her to explain your links with CMT and Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK, please email email@example.com
If you’re feeling down…
Having CMT and being young as well is really, really tough, and sometimes, you might need a little bit of extra support to assist you through your problems.
