Depression, Anxiety, Mood, and Parkinson’s

with Joanne Hamilton, PhD

Tuesday, August 9, 2022

2 pm MDT (1 pm PDT, 3 pm CDT, 4 pm EDT)

Parkinson’s impact on emotions and mood is often overlooked because they are complicated and harder to talk about objectively than physical symptoms. But approximately 50-60% of people living with Parkinson’s experience varying levels of depression and anxiety so the more you know about these mood-related issues, the better equipped you will be to get the care you need.

During this webinar Dr. Joanne Hamilton will discuss:

  • The many facets and types of depression
  • How to spot, understand, and manage anxiety
  • The role neuropsychologist can play in helping you live better with Parkinson’s
  • How (or if) mood issues change or get worse the longer you live with Parkinson’s
  • When and how to treat depression and anxiety
  • The latest in treatments, including non-pharmacological interventions for these mood-related issues?
  • And much more!
