A toll-free Helpline allows individuals with MS, family members, care partners, and friends to speak directly with one of MSAA's experienced specialists who have a social services or counseling background.
MSAA's Helpline may be reached several ways:
MSAA’s headquarters closes at 5pm EST. If this is a life-threatening emergency, please dial 911. You can also reach the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK and the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE for 24-hour assistance.
Helpline specialists are available to assist individuals with MS, and the people close to them, adapt to the changes they may be experiencing as they go through a life-long process of adjustments to best suit their evolving needs. MSAA's specialists can offer encouragement to clients and their care partners to identify obstacles and discover ways to overcome them. Helpline specialists may also recommend the program(s) offered by MSAA and other resources that would be of help to the client, and assist him or her with the application process.
MSAA does not operate its own network of support groups, but does offer resources to other nonprofit organizations that do.
