MS Support Groups Simi Valley, T.O, Santa Clarita, Downey and Lakewood

Thanks to support group co-leader Ken Thurman for sending us the latest updates for Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Santa Clarita MS support groups. Please provide your group information and we’ll post it here.

While attending a support group may not be a good fit for everyone, most people find it helpful to talk with others who are in the same situation. Benefits of participating in support groups may include:

– Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
– Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
– Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
– Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
– Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue
– Developing a clearer understanding of what to expect with your situation
– Getting practical advice or information about treatment options
– Comparing notes about resources, such as doctors and alternative options
