The Transverse Myelitis Association offers an interactive, searchable database on Myelitis.org that helps patients find support groups. Patients can either search by state, using the expandable list below the map, or use the map to locate a local support group.
When a support group is clicked on the map, Myelitis.org expands the selection and provides the contact information of the support group leader, notes the Transverse Myelitis Association. Some leaders prefer not to provide their phone numbers, but all of them have their emails in the database. The website automatically detects when a mobile device connects and adjusts the page accordingly. As such, patients can search for support groups using their phones and tablets.
