Event description

Description

Have you recently been told you have MS? You're not alone.

We're delivering virtual Living Well with MS sessions to people living with MS across the UK which offer the chance to meet other people living with the condition.

The sessions are a chance to chat, reflect on and share experiences. We'll also look at different ways to support you to live well with MS.

Our virtual sessions are made up of 4 modules, each lasting 1.5 hours, which take place over 4 weeks. The dates for each module are 7, 14, 21 and 28 November from 6pm to 7.30pm.

We are particularly trying to reach people who live in rural and remote areas of Scotland but if you have experience of living with MS, no matter where you are we’d love to welcome you at our sessions.

What do the virtual sessions include?

Each week you will take part in a 1.5 hour virtual meeting with other people living with MS. These are fairly informal and are usually made up of a small group of people who have been living with MS.

Each week we cover a different topic, which can include: fatigue, life balance, stress, preparing for Health Care appointments, setting goals and generally understanding how to live well with MS. We work flexibly and tailor each session to meet the needs of the specific group of people taking part.

Following the sessions you’ll have the opportunity to stay in touch with others online.

We’re delighted to have received funding from the RS MacDonald Charitable trust to support this work.

What do I need to take part?

All you need to join in is a laptop/tablet/phone/computer with access to a microphone and camera. You will need a stable internet connection to use the video meeting software that we use.
