The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) is teaming up with the Foundation of the CMSC and EMD Serono to launch a new Mental Health Mini Mentorship Program this summer. The week-long program is designed to educate clinicians who have expressed interest in the unique mental challenges faced by the estimated 1 million people in the United States living with MS.

The program will be offered 4 times throughout the summer at Holy Name Medical Center’s MS Center in Teaneck, New Jersey, and at the Multiple Sclerosis Center at Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC) in Hackensack, New Jersey.

“We are excited to bring the MS Mental Health Mini-Mentorship program to life at Holy Name and HUMC this summer,” said June Halper, chief executive officer of CMSC. “This program was conceived to address a vitally important challenge faced by multiple sclerosis patients: lack of adequate recognition and treatment of their mental health-related symptoms, which are just as important as the physical obstacles they face.”
