MS Connection Groups or self-help groups bring people together who share common life experiences for support, education and mutual aid. Benefits of participating in a connection group include:
- Learning new information and strategies for confronting problems.
- Finding support from others.
- The opportunity to help others.
- Feeling empowered and more self-confident in coping with challenges.
The Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter of the National MS Society MS Connection Groups focus on support, advocacy, education, and are social in nature. Some groups also serve specific populations, such as young adults, parents with MS, carepartners, or African-Americans.
Members of an MS Connection Groups share a belief that positive personal change happens through individual efforts with the support of others.

We are a support group for anyone dealing with MS, whether you are the one with MS or you are a friend, family member, or caregiver. This is a group where you can laugh or cry, ask questions or just listen. Occasionally, we have guest speakers to discuss MS related issues. We welcome everyone from the newly diagnosed to those who have had MS for many years.
People affected by MS, helping each other. Come find support, share and learn through interactive discussions, videos and speakers. New members are welcome!

Knowledge is power. And if you or someone you love is living with relapsing MS, chances are you’re always looking to learn more about the condition, treatment options, and how others have adapted. To help you along your fact-finding journey, we’ve created Let’s Talk MS. This free, engaging event features informative talks from MS experts and peers. And, at this upcoming talk we’ll also be discussing Above MS™, the support program from Biogen. We’ll provide an overview of the program and take a look at the different services it provides for both those living with MS and their care partners.
