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. Share your story, learn from local professionals, and offer support to family and friends. Look for an upcoming support group to join, or even become a support group leader. Learn more about support groups.

 

 

Find an MG Friend – Or Become an MG Friend Yourself

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 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 Now.
