We are looking for Self Health Group Leaders in the Hudson County and Sussex County area**

Self-help groups in the National MS Society bring people together who share a common life experience (living with MS) for support, education and mutual aid. Positive personal change can happen through individual effort with the support of others. Facilitators of chapter-affiliated self-help groups are valuable volunteers who perform an integral role in facilitating support and positive change. Each self-help group is the result of a collaborative partnership between the group and the chapter. Self-help group facilitators, with the assistance and participation of group members, manage the organizational and logistical aspects of group facilitation by negotiating and dividing tasks among co-facilitators and members.
