We are a group of people who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis or have a relative or family member who has. In 2005, four women with MS founded the MS-Selbsthilfegruppe Siegen e.V. that has now more than 80 members. The group is a registered non-profit organization and member of the welfare organization DPWV. We hold regular meetings twice a month and offer a consulting hour once a month. You’ll find more details under the rubric "Dates" and "Route". Further, we offer special lectures by physicians, psychologists, physiotherapists as well as consultation concerning assistive equipment, a pass for severely disabled or pension. We organize trips to neurologic clinics and trade fairs like the REHA Care in Düsseldorf as well as joint activities and events. We represent our interests as follows:
It’s important to promote public understanding for the disease by providing information. For that purpose we participate on the "Tag der Begegnung von Menschen mit und ohne Behinderung" – a day for people with or without disablement to connect and exchange information. Further, we visit various educational facilities to inform about Multiple Sclerosis and the importance of selfhelp.
