Self-Help Groups
The Chapter sponsors a network of community self-help 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 self-help 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.
