Self-help groups bring people together who share common life experiences for support, education and mutual aid. Benefits of participating in a self-help 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.

National MS Society self-help groups may focus on support, advocacy, education, or be more social in nature. Some groups also serve specific populations, such as young adults, parents with MS, carepartners, or African-Americans.

Members of self-help groups share a belief that positive personal change happens through individual efforts with the support of others.

Find a group in your area here, or to talk to someone about establishing a group, contact an MS Navigator at 1-800-344-4867 or online.
