What is the evidence base for FMPs?

Our FMPs are under-pinned by the NICE guideline recommendations for managing ME/CFS, but also include, the core components of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (aka ACT) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (aka CFT), which have proved incredibly popular during our Pilot Programmes. They have a strong evidence base for their effectiveness in helping people live well with long-term conditions, including many of the dual diagnosis that we see in people with ME/CFS; such as pain, anxiety, depression and stress.
