Support Groups

York Support Group

About this group

Our support meetings are quite informal. We offer a safe and non judgemental place to share experiences, ask questions or simply just listen at first.

Our group is quite small but in our unique way we are all experts as we face daily challenges of living with endometriosis. Talking is good and talking to someone who understands is even better! There is no such thing as a bad question - if endometriosis has an impact on your education/work, fertility, mental health or social life (to name just a few) then we are here to discuss them.

Occasionally we invite guest speakers to provide more detailed information on various aspects of living with endometriosis. Check out our support group meetings details for more information. 

We meet every other month but the use of social media helps us to be there for each other more often - you can like our facebook page "York Endometriosis UK support group" or join our closed group "York EUK Support Group" for the latest updates and shared information. If you would like to be added to our mailing list and receive regular updates from Endometriosis UK and the York support group, drop us an email at yorkgroup@endometriosis-uk.org

Linzi

Hi, my name is Linzi and I am pleased to be the Endometriosis Support Group Leader for York. I work as a Child Health Development worker and in my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, swimming, exploring new places on walks.

I have lived with endometriosis symptoms for the previous 15 years, only being officially diagnosed in 2020. I am volunteering with the Endometriosis UK Charity to help raise awareness of the condition, to support women who are going through the diagnosis process and who are living with the condition. I am passionate about empowering women to advocate for themselves and make themselves heard, particularly when it relates to their health.

My aim is to offer a support group which will be a safe, supportive space where you can share your experiences and have your symptoms and feelings validated, as sadly they are often overlooked. You will be listened to and understood and most importantly know that you are not alone. With a mix of informal meetings and talks from guest speakers, you will gain knowledge and support with managing your symptoms.

Looking for medical advice?

Please be aware that our support service are unable to provide medical advice and can only talk about endometriosis based on their own experience. If you need medical advice, please contact your GP or endometriosis specialist.
