Rocket City MS Support Group

 The Rocket City MS Support Group meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 at Therapy Achievements.

 The Rocket City MS Support Group is open to anyone living with MS, their family and their friends.  It is a way people living with MS can get together to discuss their experiences, share ideas, and provide support for one another. We typically have a speaker on a topic that is relevant to some aspect of living with multiple sclerosis along with fun, food and friendship.  We have resumed meeting in person but have an option to join via Zoom.

Why Attend Rocket City MS Support Group?

WebMD advocates one of the biggest advantages of support groups is they help a person realize that he or she is not alone - that there are other people who have the same problems. This is often a revelation and a huge relief! Being in a support group can also help you develop new skills to relate to others. Also, members of the group who have the same problems can support each other and suggest new ways of dealing with a particular problem.

What to Expect at Rocket City MS Support Group?

Some people feel uncomfortable at first about discuss problems in front of strangers. We understand this and there is never any obligation at the Rocket City MS Support Group to share or join discussions if you don't want to. Often, the fact that others are facing the same type of situation may help you open up and discuss your feelings. In addition, everything that takes place within the support group should be kept confidential.

Knowledge Is Truly Empowering

Knowing as much as you can about multiple sclerosis, how to manage it and what to expect has an empowering effect. Knowledge can help maximize therapeutic outcomes by promoting adherence to treatment and enhance your quality of life.
