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.
