Factsheets and other resources

We realise that everyone is different and while some people want to read everything there is to read about MND others want to take it one day at a time. For this reason we have presented our factsheets in the following groups. That way people do not have to read the titles of some of the heavier going issues until they feel ready for them.

MND Scotland factsheets

The factsheets are presented as PDFs that can be downloaded and printed.

This page contains a complete listing of all the factsheets we current have available (factsheet number in brackets after the title).
