Telling your family

There is no right or wrong way or time to tell your family you have MS.

This page takes you through some of the things you might want to consider when telling parents, partners and children you have MS and has some tips about how to tell them and how to deal with their reactions.

There are also links to some books, leaflets and websites to help you explain MS to kids.
