Many people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) find online communities helpful. As more and more people look at ways to self-manage the condition, digital forums and groups can be a great way of connecting with other people, reading real people’s experiences and finding out what works well for other people.
On this page you can find links to various forums and top tips on accessing digital communities safely.
If you have any questions about online forums or would like any information about MS, please get in touch with our helpline team who is always here to listen and offer you support.
