Support Groups

MS support groups provide people with MS and their families an opportunity to share their MS experiences with those who can understand and identify with them.  Support group meetings are designed to be educational, fun, and positive. The MSF has a network of more than 100 independent support groups nationwide, and each one is unique.

In addition to supporting their members, MSF support groups are frequently active in raising awareness of MS in their communities.  Many groups participate in National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month each March.

Anyone with MS can start a support group and become a leader. Through the MSF Independent Support Group Program, new support group leaders are trained and receive ongoing support for their meetings.  They also learn how to expand their memberships. Having a co-leader without the condition is permitted.

Each support group meeting is a little different – some are educational with speakers, others are more social, and some are a little of both. In addition, many support groups welcome participation from friends and family members.

If you would like to start a support group, or if you would like to add your support group to our directory, contact MSF Support Group Coordinator Alissa Ayden at alissa@msfocus.org or call 888-673-6287.  If you are looking for an existing support group to join, search our interactive support group directory below.  Please call the contact person for the support group you are interested in to confirm date, time, and location.
