It may be difficult at times to talk about MS related symptoms with family and friends who may not grasp what it is like – but it can be very helpful talking to other people who share, or have shared, similar experiences. Groups offered by the MS Society are a safe place to freely and confidentially share and express oneself about any topic they find relevant without any judgement.

Persons who attend support and self groups report that they:

  • Enjoy the opportunity to meet and discuss issues relevant to their situation with others who have similar experiences
  • Increase their knowledge about multiple sclerosis, symptom management and overall wellness
  • Reduce feelings of isolation
  • Learn how to access resources in the community; and
  • Improve their confidence in their ability to cope successfully with MS.
