No one should have to face MS alone

For people affected by MS, finding answers and making decisions means having the right information at the right time. That’s what an MS Navigator provides — answers to your questions and access to information about all of the options available to you.

In the online world there is information everywhere, but it can be quite a challenge to find what you’re looking for when you need it. MS Navigators have the resources to provide you with the latest about MS including:
  • What you need to know when newly diagnosed
  • Treatment options and symptom management strategies
  • Accessing optimal health care
  • Meeting workplace challenges
  • Understanding benefits such as health insurance
  • Facing financial challenges and planning for the future
  • Facing caregiver challenges
  • Finding help in the home
  • Managing life changes
  • Locating resources in your community.

MS Navigators have information on national resources, and those that are available right in your area. They can help you:
  • Deal with a crisis
  • Connect with others living with MS
  • Find what you need to maintain independence
  • Access comprehensive educational programs and more.

Our MS Navigators are here to respond to your unique needs. Whether you are a person with MS, a family member or concerned about someone with MS, the National MS Society is your partner — helping you find the information and resources you need.

Call 1-800-344-4867 to speak directly to a navigator. Or pose your questions in the comments field below, and check back in to the Society blog in the days and months to come as we address your questions through our “Ask an MS Navigator” column.
