Early Onset and Newly Diagnosed Support Groups

Support groups can be overwhelming and very intimidating for many people.  There are groups in the community that are specifically designed for individuals who are newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or diagnosed at a younger age.  These meetings are a great place to start and provide the opportunity to connect with others and learn of community resources and reliable information.
