When you are combating something like PD, you can’t undervalue your mental health. Stress, anxiety, depression, and apathy are common in PD. Depression can be one of the first symptoms of PD before motor symptoms even arise. Further more, stress can make motor symptoms such as tremor and dyskinesia worse. Stress not! Depression and associated symptoms are quite treatable. In this talk, you will hear advice from mental health expert Ashley Stafford, LCSW. We will learn how to identify symptoms and discuss various treatment strategies available to you and your loved ones.
