If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, you may have a lot of questions. We are here to provide support and information.
The chapter runs professionally led short-term Newly Diagnosed Support Groups four times a year. Groups meet once a week for three sessions. Individuals who have been diagnosed with MS in the past two years and their family members are welcome.
Topics of discussion will include:
- Symptoms and symptom management
- Communication and positive coping skills
- Individual and family adjustment to MS
- Employment issues
- Changes in lifestyles, roles, relationships, and responsibilities
- Community resources.
Please visit the Program Calendar to find information on the next Newly Diagnosed Group.
Knowledge is Power is a series of articles on subjects of special interest to persons newly diagnosed with MS and their families that can be emailed or mailed to you.
You can call to order newly diagnosed brochures and information sheets.
The chapter can also provide assistance with financial planning.
