What is MS-MHP?
After many years of discussion and brainstorming, on May 29, 2013, the CMSC MS Mental Health Professionals (MS-MHP) Special Interest Group (SIG) held its first annual meeting. Previous Chair Roberta Winter and Co-chair Alicia Sloan led this fearless group and facilitated discussions around the future goals for the group and subcommittee formations. The MS-MHP SIG elected Allison Fine, a clinical social worker in private practice in Seattle, Washington, as Secretary. While the group's goals will surely change over time, the initial all-inclusive foundation will focus on best practices for all professionals interested in the mental health of patients with MS.
