Top Resources For Finding MS Support Groups

There’s no reason to go through a life living with MS alone. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with MS for longer than you remember, finding an MS support group will help you deal with the struggles you face. We’ve compiled some of the top resources for finding MS support groups to help you find the right MS support group for you - in your community or online.

Find Local MS Support Groups in the Classifieds

Many local support groups meet at hospitals, churches, or schools in your community. Usually, they list their meetings in the local paper’s classifieds. Not finding the right group in the paper? Try searching online classifieds, like your local Craigslist or community websites for additional information. You might also find information on bulletin boards at your local grocery stores, city hall, or other areas where groups post information about events in your community.

Find Local MS Support Groups Online

If you can’t find a local MS support group by searching bulletin boards and classifieds, try looking online. There are plenty of places online dedicated to helping you find MS support groups in your local community. Check out the National MS Society and the MS Focus Independent Support Group Network. Just type in your location and distance preferences to pull up a list of MS support groups in your area.

Find Online MS Support Groups

There are tons of websites out there that help people living with MS to come together to support each other through the ups and downs. This website and our online community is one of them. If you are looking for other online communities, try checking the National MS Society support groups or searching on Facebook for MS groups to join. These communities are great because it doesn’t matter where you live; you can always connect with your online supporters.

Finding the right support group may take time. You may need to try a few communities before you find the one that is right for you. Take your time and enjoy the process of getting to know other people dealing with similar challenges. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from others living with MS.
