Multiple Sclerosis Coalition seeks participants for mental health care survey

June 08, 2017
The Multiple Sclerosis Coalition is seeking participants to take a brief, anonymous survey about access to mental health care. The Coalition is asking people with MS, and healthcare professionals who treat individuals with MS, whether or not they've needed these services.
 
Also important is access to peer support -- through support groups, peer counseling, and other means. For some, this peer support is essential in coping with the changes MS brings. Knowing you're not alone can make all the difference. But how available are these services in your community? Are there areas that are underserved? What can be done to improve the availability of mental health care to people with MS?
 
Your answers will help us understand the state of mental health care for people with MS across the country. Please take just a few minutes to share your experience and knowledge with the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition.
 
To participate in the survey, visit www.surveymonkey.com/r/MSFOCUS.
 
Your involvement helps the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition serve as a voice for the MS community. MS Focus: the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation is an active and a founding member of the coalition.
