MS Awareness Week
Most people have a vague idea what MS is, but lots of them are a bit confused. Some people know it causes problems with how we move. But what about how we feel? And the symptoms you can't see? For MS Awareness Week, let's help everyone understand #ThisIsMS.
How do I get involved?
There are lots of ways to get involved:
- update your social media accounts with MS Week banners and graphics
- download and share our graphics on your social media accounts to help describe your symptoms in 5 words (or more!) using the hashtags #ThisIsMS and #MSin5Words
- email us to share your story about living with MS.
And stay tuned for more videos, stories, research and social media graphics throughout the week by signing up to the Buzz and following us on social media.

Raising awareness across the UK
In Northern Ireland, we're working with elected officials in the lead up to MS Awareness Week on issues such as personal independence payment (PIP), waiting times and the current review of neurology services.
