Young onset Parkinson's
Being diagnosed with young onset Parkinson's can be alienating and confusing. But you're not alone.
Talk to other younger people with Parkinson's
Chatting to others in a similar situation to you can be helpful. This list of UK-wide online support groups, run by and for younger people, will help you to connect with other younger people with Parkinson's.
These groups are independent of Parkinson's UK. We're confident they can be a good source of further support but the charity isn't responsible for their content, services or the accuracy of information provided.
Emma is a creative director and needs to be able to win over clients quickly - so she tells people about her Parkinson's straight away, including her bosses.
