Mental Health

MS Center clients and their caregivers have access to short term counseling, and professionally facilitated support and social groups. This program is partially supported by funding from the Community Foundation of Collier County.


Short term counseling through our licensed mental health providers can help MS patients develop better coping skills to face the challenges encountered with this chronic disease.


Support Groups

Multiple support groups with professional facilitators to connect clients with others facing similar challenges, and to reduce isolation, particularly during the pandemic.

Presentations from Featured Speakers

Educational and inspirational speakers keep clients informed, stimulated and growing.

“It’s so important for people to have a place to go, so they’re not isolated or overwhelmed. The MS Center is critical for people who may not have access to help any other way….” Linda Sumner.
