Mental Health and Wellness - Victory Summit Virtual Event
According to the Parkinson’s Outcomes Project, a study that tracked over 13,000 people in five countries with Parkinson’s, depression and anxiety are the two most important factors that affect the well-being of people with Parkinson’s. Nearly 80% of people living with Parkinson’s report feeling depressed and anxious at some point throughout their disease. Feeling depressed and/or anxious can negatively impact your motor symptoms, relationships, sleep, disease progression, ability to exercise, and more, all of which are critical aspects to living well with Parkinson’s.
Join us on Friday, September 17, where you will learn from and interact with experts who specialize in symptoms related to mood, anxiety, and depression. You’ll also hear advice on actions you can take to reduce these symptoms and thrive with Parkinson’s.

The Victory Summit virtual event goes beyond the screen. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage with fellow people with Parkinson's all from the comfort of your own home using a computer, tablet, or phone. Plus, you’ll meet some of our Ambassadors who are available to support you at any time.
