Join a Support Group

The Greater New York Chapter understands that the effects of ALS are physically, emotionally, and at times frightening for the person diagnosed and their family. You are not alone. ALS support groups provide a caring, supportive, open, and safe environment for people to gather, connect, and talk with one another.

Our social workers and nurses facilitate the groups and help provide opportunities to learn about living with the disease from others who understand the challenges and can help you establish a network of valuable resources and sustained support. While support groups are regional, anyone can attend any group that works for their schedule. Currently, all support groups are offered on a virtual platform.
