For Women’s Health Week 2021, MSWA highlights the topic of ‘Connections,’ by exploring Client and Counsellor perspectives on the importance of connection for women living with neurological conditions.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that we stay connected, maintain our relationships and support each other as we work our way through these challenging times.
MSWA provides vital support and services to people in Western Australia living with a neurological condition. This includes people living with multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease, and acquired brain injury, to name a few.

Connecting with Family and Friends Animation
Having a chronic illness, like MS, can leave you feeling lonely and isolated.
MS Australia has worked hard with people from the MS community to bring you this animation highlighting the importance of connections, especially after the events of 2020 and 2021.
Every stage of production was produced in close consultation with people with MS – incorporating their words and experiences – and MS experts including an MS Nurse and MS specialist psychologist.
By staying connected with family and friends, you can weather any storm.
Special thanks to Sonia, who lives with MS and voiced this animation.
