Ménière Committee

The Ménière committee aims to mobilize and break the isolation of people with Ménières disease and who suffer from vestibular disorders. The committee also wishes to organize certain activities, led by a qualified counselor, allowing people to share their experience and to live their illness and / or disability in a more positive way through workshops and support groups. People could also exchange some advice and provide mutual support. In addition, we would like to create an information guide that would bring together all the essential information about Ménière's disease and vestibular disorders: the symptoms, the repercussions, which professional to go to see, the exams to take, the solutions, the strategies. crisis management, etc. Those in need could thus have access to the necessary information and to the resources available in a much more efficient and specific manner. Finally, we would like to integrate the National Day of Ménière's disease with that of the JNA which, thanks to its transversality, would allow Ménière's disease to have a much better visibility.
