Self Help Groups

Support groups allow individuals living with MS to come together to discuss what is important to them. Support groups explore a variety of topics to allow for in-depth discussions and communication with those who know what you are going through. These support systems are great for understanding your own MS by connecting with others who share similar experiences.

Eastport Hall in Bangor, ME

Bangor Self Help Group

A National MS Society affiliated support group for people living with MS, their families, friends and caregivers. Besides sharing the realities of living with MS, we share good times, laughter and information in a positive, upbeat environment. Everyone comes full of ideas to take home and perhaps try out. Join a monthly meeting for education, information and good company!

If the college campus is closed due to inclement weather, the meeting will be canceled until the next month.

Talk MS Groups
The Chapter sponsors a network of community Talk MS groups facilitated by people with MS for people with MS. The groups provide an opportunity to share information, discuss common concerns, and have fun in a relaxed social setting! Members of Talk MS groups share a belief that positive change happens through individual efforts with the support of others.
 
The benefits of these groups include:
  • Learning new information and strategies for confronting problems.
  • Finding reassurance and support from others with similar life experiences.
  • Developing personal insights and achieving personal growth.
  • Guest speakers sharing their expertise.
  • The opportunity to be helpful to others.
  • Feeling less isolated.
  • Learning to express feelings better and to be more sensitive to the feelings of others.
  • Feeling empowered and more self-confident in coping with challenges.
  • Developing a connection to a community and personal identification with a social group.
