MS is a complicated disease that strikes most people in the prime of life as they are building families and careers. How it manifests in each person is different, but most people will have to prepare to live with this disease for quite some time. As a result, MS patients and their loved ones are often presented with a host of difficult transitions and emotional issues. Through individual and family counseling, and seminars, the Center offers a range of resources to assist each individual, as well as families and friends.
The Rocky Mountain MS Center is happy to provide two free counseling sessions to new patients. Please call 303-788-4030 for more information.
