Mito Information Days are open to everyone affected by mito, whether you, or a family member, are waiting for a diagnosis, have recently been diagnosed or have had mito for some time.


A Mito Connect Call will be held on Saturday 11 May.

What are Mito Connect Calls?
Mito Connect Calls provide a virtual space for members of the mito community to connect with each other. We hope they will go a little way to ease the isolation that many people experience, whether due to geographical location and/or health issues. The calls offer an opportunity to share your experience and receive advice and support from others who understand what it is like to live with mito. Anyone affected by mito is welcome and encouraged to join. They are held monthly at a variety of times to help make them accessible for the community.

What to expect on a Mito Connect Call
A Mito Foundation staff member will welcome you when you dial in. Once everyone has dialed in, you will have the opportunity to introduce yourself. The call is then open for participants to ask questions and share their experiences. The Mito Foundation staff member will remain on the call, however participants are encouraged to speak among themselves. If you would prefer to listen without speaking that’s okay too.
