22 to 28 April is MS Awareness and this year the MS Society Scotland’s campaign theme is MS Unfiltered.
The charity is running a sensitive and intimate campaign which will shine a light on the MS topics that can feel taboo or difficult to talk about.
It will be creating a safe space for people to talk honestly and openly about everything from bladder control and sexual dysfunction, to navigating menopause and cultural stigma.
MS Awareness Week is also the perfect time for people affected by MS to find out more about the help and support available to those living with the condition and those close to them.
Martin Whitfield MSP said: 
“There are over 15,000 people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Scotland, so just about everyone has a family member or friend with the condition.
“This MS Awareness Week, MS Society Scotland is focusing on raising awareness of MS symptoms that can be difficult to talk about in their MS Unfiltered campaign.
“I’m urging anyone in South Scotland affected by MS or who just wants to be more aware about the condition to find out more during MS Awareness Week.”
