Overcoming MS is the world’s leading multiple sclerosis healthy lifestyle charity. 

Over 2.8 million people worldwide live with multiple sclerosis, with many experiencing progressive disability over time. Although there is currently no cure for MS, we believe that people with MS can lead positive and fulfilling lives. This belief is based on substantial scientific evidence of the benefits of holistic self-care, alongside medical therapies when appropriate.

At the heart of OMS is a self-management program for people with MS, devised to support their physical and mental health, based on clear, practical actions.

Our vision is a world in which every person with MS is empowered to take control of their health, is making informed lifestyle choices and is living a full and healthy life.
