Led by trained peer facilitators, the Wisconsin Chapter’s multiple sclerosis self-help groups are comprised of people affected by MS who meet to:
- Discuss issues
- Share information and feelings
- Provide mutual support
- Listen to educational presentations by professionals
Groups are open to spouses, family and friends and typically meet once a month.
Self-help groups are located throughout the state of Wisconsin to give people with MS and their loved ones the chance to meet regularly for educational and social purposes. Members share a belief that positive personal change can happen through individual effort with the support of others.
Groups sponsored by the Wisconsin Chapter are facilitated by trained volunteers who are committed to helping others and have personal experience with MS.
