Family and relationships

Our relationships with family, partners, friends or colleagues are important for our wellbeing. That's equally true whether we have lots of people around us or just a few close bonds.

These pages explore things to think about when you're telling people about your diagnosis. There's also tips on sex and MS. And some thoughts on how you can support a friend who's newly diagnosed.
