  • MSFriends Telephone-based Peer Connection Program

    I always promote staying active socially and this program is certainly beneficial. - Dave

    MS knows no timetable – this is why we offer support when you want and need it.

    MSFriends is the first and only 24/7 telephone-based peer support program for people living with MS. The MSFriends program connects you with volunteers living with MS. The common bond of living with MS creates a unique connection. MSFriends volunteers complete a rigorous screening and training program and are focused on the needs of those who call for support.

    What are the benefits of an MSFriends peer relationship?

    • Having someone who knows first-hand what it is like to live with MS to talk with and share your story. MSFriends is there to help you deal with the changes brought about by MS.
    • Having a relationship that provides you with a sounding board for good decision-making and problem solving.
    • MSFriends is just a telephone call away ― ready to help you.

    Call the MSFriends helpline at 1-866-673-7436. All of your conversations are confidential to the peer relationship.

    The National MS Society’s connection programs--which include our 1600 support groups, our partnership with MSWorld, and our Facebook Fan page, as well as MSFriends-- are based on the belief that positive personal change happens through individual efforts with the support of others. To learn more about Society connection programs in your area, please contact your chapter or call an MS Navigator at 1-800-344-4867.
