Peer support

Join a peer support group and talk to others who understand

Our MS Peer Support groups in metropolitan and regional SA, and Darwin help to bring people with MS together to meet with others who are sharing similar experiences. Meeting at least once a month these groups come together to share their feelings and experiences, offer support and advice, and promote friendship and community spirit.

Most groups function independently from the MS Society, and are a great way to meet new people, socialise, and learn more about MS.

People with MS, and families and carers also have 24-hour access to peer support at their fingertips with our private Facebook groups.

See the Peer Support Calendar below for details of groups meeting in your area. To update your Peer Support group details, please contact MS Assist.
