Community & Resources

When navigating life with myasthenia gravis (MG) it helps to have as much information and support as possible. From brochures, to webinars, to the latest news, the information below can help you on your journey with MG. You may find support by attending an MG event or joining an MG community.

 

Find MG Support Groups

Are you looking to connect with others who share common life experiences? Support Groups can offer you support, resources, educational programming as well as social and recreational activities. They provide opportunities to share your experiences openly and freely in a safe setting and you can learn from educational programming and invited guest speakers on a variety of topics. Online Support Groups are open to anyone regardless of where you live. Find online support groups and contact support group leaders to join today. https://myasthenia.org/MG-Community/Find-MG-Support-Groups

 

Connect with an MG Friend

Are you or someone you know looking for phone support to help manage myasthenia? MG Friends are here to support you! Our free peer-to-peer phone support program, MG Friends, helps to ensure that everyone in the community gets the information they need, and know they are not alone in living with myasthenia gravis. While Support Groups are critical to service delivery, there are many people who are not able to access this service or who feel more comfortable talking one-on-one than sharing in a group setting. MG Friends provides the opportunity for a person with questions and concerns to connect to someone else with MG—no matter where they live in the United States.  Connect with an MG Friend Right away by Completing this Online Form.  You can learn more about the MG Friends program here. https://myasthenia.org/MG-Community/MG-Friends
