Resources for support services

As a community of people living with and impacted by ALS, we understand that ALS is a difficult, heartbreaking, and downright scary disease. 


ALS is different for everyone, but there is one thing all people living with and impacted by ALS have in common: the need for support. 


Here are some resources for support services that can help you along your ALS journey. 


I AM ALS Support Groups


I AM ALS offers weekly virtual support groups for people who are living with and impacted by ALS. Each group provides a space for people to connect with others who can relate to what they’re going through and receive emotional support. Current groups include one for all people living with ALS, Veterans living with ALS, primary caregivers, all loved ones, and for the bereaved.
