The Hampton Roads Chapter recognizes that self help groups play a major role in helping those living with the challenges MS. Self help groups provide an avenue for connection, optimism, education, personal change, advocacy and friendship.
Our self help groups are composed of individuals with MS, family members, and friends and are led by trained volunteers. The members of each group give input and determine the group’s meeting agenda and topics of discussion; therefore, each group is distinctive.
Please contact the Chapter at 757-490-9627 option 2 for a listing of National MS Society self Help groups. We recommend contacting the group leader or chapter in advance if you would like to attend as groups are sometimes canceled or meeting times/locations change based on meeting space availability.
If you do not find a group that is convenient to you, and you think you might like to start one, contact the Hampton Roads Chapter 757-490-9627.
