Peer Counseling Program 


The National MS Society can connect you to trained volunteers living with MS or who are family members of those living with MS.  Peer volunteers can offer one-on-one phone sessions or email contact to discuss your MS related concerns.

Peer counseling volunteers complete a training program and screening process and are focused on the needs of those who call for support.

These sessions are available to those who are:

  • newly diagnosed
  • diagnosed for several years, but coping with new symptoms
  • hospitalized for the first time for steroid treatments,
  • exacerbations, or diagnostic work-up, etc.
  • considering using a wheelchair or scooter
  • pregnant or experiencing a post-partum exacerbation
  • coping with being homebound
  • experiencing a range of other issues related to living with MS 
  • family member of a person living with MS.
The National MS Society’s Connection Programs – which include our support groups, self-help groups, individual
and crisis counseling sessions-- are based on the belief that positive personal change happens through individual
efforts with the support of others.
