What to expect from a Mito Meet-up
Say Hi! Your facilitator will start by introducing themselves, followed by short introductions from the meet-up group. If you prefer to just listen after introducing yourself, that's okay.
Discussion. Share experiences, ask questions, and help others within the community. We work together during topic discussions to support and uplift one another. See each Meet-up for the discussion topic. They change monthly, and information is provided to get the conversation started.
See you soon! Meet-ups last about an hour, but the call can continue. Discuss the options with your Meet-up lead. Alternatively, if you want to connect with a community member privately, contact Helpline or email@example.com.

To ensure that all participants get the most out of the Mito Foundation events, please follow these guidelines:
- Mito Meet-ups are NOT for academics or health professionals not impacted by mito. However, don't hesitate to contact our Helpline, who will assist you.
- Be respectful and nonjudgmental of everyone's right to participate equally or not at all.
- Active Listening should always be adhered to when someone is sharing. Please, no interrupting, don't pass judgement and listen attentively.
- The facilitator may interrupt and move the conversation along.
- Please take a break from the session at any time to look after yourself.
- Refrain from giving medical advice. Every case of mito is different and we encourage everyone to speak to their health care team before commencing any new treatment.
- An important aspect of creating a safe and welcoming call is to make sure everything shared is confidential. Please do not mention what is discussed outside the group setting.
