Wellness Wednesdays: Mental Wellness Series

People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) experience a wide range of mood, thinking and physical changes that can negatively impact how they engage with the world around them. Trouble moving, fear, or even stigma surrounding the diagnosis may lead to avoiding social situations. Interestingly, research suggests that lack of social connection may impact quality of life even more than tremor. Connecting with people who can relate to your experience, accepting support and finding ways to engage with your family, friends and community can help you overcome isolation and improve your quality of life. 

Join us for a candid, virtual discussion about the benefits and challenges of maintaining strong social ties in Parkinson’s.
