Best MS Support Groups for Families

We talk a lot about the importance of having support as you navigate MS, but support groups aren’t just for those who’ve been diagnosed with MS. Family members and caretakers need them, too. If you need help finding MS support groups, read on for the best MS support groups for families.

Carepartner Support Group by MS Connection

MS Connection has many support groups available, but the Carepartner Support Group is dedicated to those friends and family members who help care for a loved one with MS. In this online support group, you’ll be able to connect with other people dealing with the same types of issues, including teaching kids about MS, juggling care of your loved one with personal care, and balancing work and your personal life.

Newly Diagnosed Support Group by MS Connection

Newly Diagnosed Support Group is another example of a digital support group by MS Connection, and while it isn’t only for families, it is a great support group for families whose loved one has been recently diagnosed. Learn more about MS and connect with other newly diagnosed individuals and the people who love them. If you are struggling to cope with a new diagnosis, this should be your first stop.

Local MS Support Groups by National MS Society

If you want to find a local group of people to connect with, your best bet is to do a search on National MS Society. National MS Society self-help groups are all different. Some focus more on support while others focus on advocacy, education, or wellness. Others are more focused on providing opportunities for social interactions. Some groups are general and open to everyone, while others are specific to family members, caretakers, children, or spouses of those with MS.

Being part of a support group is one of the best ways to get involved with the MS community, and it will help you help the person you love who has MS, too.
