MS Patient Support Organizations

In addition to MS organizations who are focused on research and registries, we have several organizations which offer support and services to folks affected by multiple sclerosis. The following provides an introduction to the services provided by the more prominent nonprofit organizations in the United States which serve on a national level.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Living with MS means the road to wellness is more than treatment of the disease. Equally important are health and wellness strategies, a strong support network of family and friends, satisfying work and leisure activities, a meaningful place in the community, and adequate attention to one's inner self.

The National MS Society offers an extensive variety of programs, services and resources for people living with MS, including family members, caregivers and other members of their support systems. Local Society chapter programs vary from one community to another. To learn more about all of the programs offered in your community, please contact your chapter.
