You’re not alone in facing the daily challenges of MS. The National MS Society offers several programs to keep you connected and emotionally healthy.
Offers a telephone peer support helpline, staffed with people who know first-hand what it is like to live with MS. The helpline is available from 8:00 am – 11:00 pm CT. Call 1-866-673-7436 or go online. All of your conversations are confidential to the peer relationship.
Offers chat, message boards, a resource center, an online magazine, and a community of people who share your daily challenges.
Help Finding a Therapist
Designed by a social worker, HelpPRO grew out of a strong conviction that people who are feeling anxious and vulnerable deserve a swift, responsive way to find the best mental health professional for their needs. Having to rely on advertisements, out-of-date telephone directories or insurance company referrals can only add to this anxiety.

• Is located near you.
• Focuses on your age-group.
• Takes your insurance.
• Accepts Medicare and Medicaid.
• Understands your cultural background.
• Has evening office hours.

• Offers a sliding-scale fee.
