World MS Day 2024

A day to celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future for the MS community, on 30 May 2024

Celebrate World MS Day with Overcoming MS

Join the worldwide campaign and help us make a difference to people living with MS.

World MS Day is taking place on Thursday 30 May 2024, and as a global charity it is a key date in our calendar. It brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with everyone affected by multiple sclerosis. Find out how to get involved below, and help us spread awareness of multiple sclerosis across the globe.


This year’s theme: MS Diagnosis

This year’s theme for World MS Day is ‘My MS diagnosis: navigating MS together’.

The ‘My MS Diagnosis’ campaign advocates for early and accurate diagnosis for everyone living with MS. We want to raise awareness and support our community by sharing personal experiences of receiving an MS diagnosis.

You can read more about receiving an MS diagnosis here.

How to get involved:

Share your story to help others

You can share your diagnosis story with us to help others in the community who are currently navigating this stage of their journey.

If you would like to share your diagnosis story with us and your advice for others going through this challenging time, email us at [email protected].

Support within the community

We want to support you to talk about your diagnosis. It often helps to talk to others who have also received an MS diagnosis so that you don’t feel alone in your situation.

If you haven’t already you can join the Live Well Hub and an Overcoming MS Circle where you can ask the community questions, share stories and encourage each other. Find out more here.

If you want support to facilitate a discussion with your Circle about receiving an MS diagnosis with your Circle, you can email us at [email protected].
