Become a Self-Help Group Leader!
Self-help groups in the NMSS bring people together who share a common life experience (living with MS) for support, education, and mutual aid. They share a belief that positive personal change can happen through individual effort with the support of others. Leaders of chapter-affiliated self-help groups are valuable volunteers for the National MS Society and perform an integral role in facilitating this process. Each self-help group is the result of a collaborative partnership between the group and the chapter.
Self-help group leaders and co-leaders, with the assistance and participation of group members, manage the organizational and logistical aspects of group facilitation, by negotiating and dividing tasks among co-leaders and members. You can be an imporant part of that program delivery by starting and/or leading a self-help support group in your area.
