New to Parkinson’s?

For some, a Parkinson’s diagnosis comes as a relief; an explanation for previously unexplained symptoms. Others may be stunned, struggling with what the future may look like. As you begin processing your emotions, which can be wide-ranging, it’s important to know you are not alone.
Built on Community
As you learn more about Parkinson's, work towards building a network of support, and, when you're ready, connect with others living with PD. The Parkinson's Foundation is built on community. Take a moment to sign up for PD Conversations, an online community of people living with Parkinson's, care partners, and, of course, people who are new to a Parkinson's diagnosis.
Call the Parkinson's Foundation Helpline at 1.800.4PD.INFO (1-800-473-4636) or email Helpline@Parkinson.org for answers to all your Parkinson’s questions. Connect with a compassionate, trained PD information specialist who can assist you in either English or Spanish. The Helpline is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST.
The Parkinson’s Foundation is here for you at every stage of your journey.
We offer the community, resources and advice to support you – and your family – as you begin to build
a better life with Parkinson’s disease.
