Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease (YOPD) Resources

Very often, the emotional, social, physical, and psychological needs of those diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s disease (YOPD) are different from those diagnosed at an older age. You might be soaring in your career, expecting a baby, raising multiple school-age children at home, and/or getting ready to buy your first house. These are different concerns than the ones who are diagnosed much later in life have. That’s why we want to shine a spotlight on YOPD. We want you to have the education, resources, and support you need to live well with Parkinson’s no matter your age.

Here, you’ll find a collection of our most popular and helpful YOPD resources.
