Why it is important to Be Bold in Blue

Multiple sclerosis doesn't just affect your physical health, it can also impact your mental health too.  Around half of all people with MS experience depression at some point in their life, as well as other mental health problems like anxiety and stress.  Symptoms of these mental health problems can include difficulty sleeping, breakdown in relationships and an inability to cope with daily tasks or commitments. 

Our dedicated enquiries team receives almost 90 enquiries each week, covering a range of topics from MS symptoms and diagnosis, to depression and anxiety. 

Join us and let's reclaim Blue Monday. Together we can Be Bold in Blue and make sense of MS.

Mood matters in MS

Multiple sclerosis and mental health are linked. MS can damage regions in the brain that regulate your mood and emotions.
