Support Groups – MND and Me Foundation

Support Groups

The MND and Me Foundation together with the MND Association of Queensland has arranged regular support groups to provide the opportunity for people living with motor neurone disease to meet together in an informal environment to chat, catch up and learn from each other.

Regular guest speakers from the health sector are invited to present to the support groups. These guests and/or volunteers include health workers who know about motor neurone disease or have expertise in a topic that may be of interest to the members of the group.

All of the MND Support Groups are held regularly and are located in Brisbane, Gold Coast, regional and rural areas of Queensland.
