National MS Society online communities provide people affected by multiple sclerosis the support, information and connections they need —when they need them. These communities are led by trained volunteers who assist in leading conversations and ensuring community members have access to resources like the Society’s MS Navigator® program, crisis support, and other Society programs and information.
Community members can expect an environment that respects privacy and is free of hate speech, bullying and spamming. For more information, please see a complete list of the Society’s social media guidelines.
