BUILDING ON SHARED EXPERIENCES AND UNDERSTANDINGS
 
Communicating

Communicating with each other to build on shared experiences and understandings can be important when living with MS - and also a bit of fun. It also provides a foundation for constructive feedback, via testimonials and the like, about how best to enhance the provision of services and support. Irrespective of where you live you are encouraged to become part of this process. Let us know about other groups that you would like to see referenced or if you would like to include a direct link to your area.
