Support Groups

Finding connection with others experiencing MS can be very helpful for patients and their family
members. The following, is a list of resources to find support:

  • The MS Society keeps an active list of local support groups. Each group is unique, so
    people are encouraged to contact the group leaders before your first meeting to make sure
    the group will be a good fit for you.  1-800-344-4867
  • The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation also keeps an active list of local support groups.
    Again, it is important to contact group leaders before attending.
  • The MS Society also has many active online support groups and discussion boards for
    people with MS.
  • The Partners MS Center is also currently running a support group the 3rd Tuesday of each
    month from 5:30 – 6:30 PM for people with MS in their 20s and 30s. Please call Liz Misasi,
    LICSW at 617-525-6550, for more details and to RSVP.
