The Chapter coordinates over 28 Self-Help Groups across the state of Georgia. These groups provide a sympathetic ear and offer social and educational opportunities for people with MS and their care partners.
Self-help groups are located throughout our Chapter area to provide you with a place to go and talk with others and learn more about MS.
Groups meet regularly for educational and social purposes, allowing members to express feelings and provide support to one another. Members share a belief that positive personal change can happen through individual effort with the support of others.
The Society recognizes the valuable role self-help groups can play in addressing the informational, emotional, and social support needs of our members.
To request services or if you are interested in starting a group in your area, contact the Georgia Chapter at (678) 672-1000 or 1-800-FIGHT- MS or e-mail Stephanie Shapiro for more information.
