Self-Help meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Lion's Club Hall, 701 Coverdale Road Riverview.
Self-help groups are an informal way to link people with common concerns. All self-help programs have the same goals.
To give and receive:
- Emotional support
- Practical ideas in dealing with problems common to members of the group
Self-help is based on the idea that no one knows more about a problem than those living with it. Each person is an expert having learned from his/her own experiences.
In our self-help group, individuals share not only their problems but also their successes. Sharing and talking with others who have had either the same or similar experiences, helps people to discover they are not alone and that there are others who understand what they are going through.
Support and self-help programs don't solve problems, but they do offer realistic support, encouragement and hope.
The Chapter self-help meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month during the months of September, October, November, January, February, March, April and May at the Riverview Lions Club, 701 Coverdale Road. They begin at 7PM.
All MS persons, their caregivers, partners and friends are welcome at our meetings.
