Who to talk with

The MND community is extensive, committed and immensely supportive. We recommend that you contact the MND association in your state in the first instance for support and information based on your needs.

Some state associations host information sessions for people recently diagnosed with MND, and their family and friends. State MND associations can also help to put you in touch with MND clinics, and local health professionals and community care providers who will assist you to live as independently as possible.
