If you, a member of your family or a friend has recently been diagnosed with motor neurone disease it is likely that you are experiencing many confusing and confronting emotions. You may also be feeling overwhelmed by too much information or worried that you do not have enough information. This section has some ideas for people recently diagnosed with MND.

Talk to a person who knows about motor neurone disease

Do you have a question about motor neurone disease? Have you just found out that a friend or colleague has motor neurone disease and you don't know what to say? Are you thinking about attending a motor neurone disease information session but want to find out more before you make the decision about going? Phone the MND Info Line.

Attend an education about motor neurone disease

MND education sessions are held throughout the year in Sydney and other areas of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. There is usually no charge to attend an MND NSW education session if you are a person living with motor neurone disease, a family member, carer or friend. However, bookings are essential.
