[Webinar Recording] YOPD Council: Mental Health and Parkinson’s


Approximately 50-60% of people living with Parkinson’s experience varying levels of depression and anxiety, and nearly all deal with loss. During this YOPD Council session, the members of our Council discussed:

  • How they have dealt with depression and anxiety
  • Strategies that have worked and those that haven’t to get into a better headspace
  • Tools for managing feelings of loss
  • How to communicate issues of mental health to friends, family, and care teams
  • How to manage anticipatory grief in yourself and others
  • Ways to reframe expectations without settling for a life less lived
  • And much more
