The Chapter’s peer counseling program:
- Provides emotional support from people who know what it’s like living with MS. Peer counselors are trained to speak about the challenges of living with this disease to others with MS, to the families and friends of people with MS, and to the general public.
- Peer counselors distribute MS information and provide referrals to resources throughout our chapter territory.
- This also includes referrals to professional counselors.
- You can request peer support services through our toll-free hotline 1-800-344-4867.
