You are not alone 

People affected by mito sometimes feel isolated: geographically, emotionally and socially. With some forms of mito being desperately rare, it can be difficult to find others with the same condition.

IMP Member organisations have a variety of support services for people living locally.

Where there is no national body, or little or no specialist care, please contact us to request assistance with being put in touch with a medical professional. 

If you are a clinician and would like to help mito patients in countries where local specialist medical assistance is limited or unavailable, please contact us.


IMP’s support services include:

Closed Facebook Group

The IMP Closed Facebook Group is a virtual support group for everyone affected by mito. Members are spread around the world, have many different types of mitochondrial disease, some are patients, others are parents and carers, some may have recently heard of mito and be at the start of their journey, others have been part of the mito community for years. 

Members offer support, share experiences and provide a safe space to connect with others affected by mito.

If you’d like to connect with others in the mito community, join us today.
