Connecting with others who have “been there” can make all the difference
The “Someone to Listen” peer support program matches you with trained volunteers living with MS who offer regularly scheduled, ongoing support over the phone for a 2-3 month timeframe to help you set goals and learn new coping skills. This program is open to anyone living with MS - from newly diagnosed to those who have lived with the disease for many years.
Sometimes talking with someone who is experiencing or has experienced the same challenges can make all the difference. Our trained volunteers can discuss such things as:
- Employment concerns
- Disclosing a diagnosis
- Coping with fatigue, pain or other symptoms
- MS treatment options
- Finding resources
- Managing relationships with family and friends
