Call for more 'Esme's Friends' telephone groups

Judith Potts, founder of Esme's Umbrella, the organisation for people affected by Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS), is calling on local, regional and national sight loss charities to create their own version of Esme’s Friends – a telephone chat service for people living with the condition, which causes visual hallucinations.

As a result of the pandemic, face to face meetings of support groups have been suspended, while many people with CBS are reporting that their symptoms have worsened. Telephone groups can provide a means for people to ask questions, and reduce their feeling of isolation.
