Maintaining emotional health is as important as the medical
management of any chronic disease diagnosis
Monday at 8AM EST on radioparkies.com, we begin a 3-part Mental Wellness series created to educate those diagnosed with YOPD on the importance of maintaining mental wellness
Many diagnosed with YOPD may experience a flood of emotions, particularly when the diagnosis comes in the prime of life - as it does with YOPD.
The 3-part Mental Wellness, Sponsored by the Young Onset Parkinson's Network (YOPNetwork.org), will:
Identify non-motor symptoms such as depression, anxiety, lack of sleep, apathy, etc.
Discuss how non-motor symptoms can affect everyday life such as how to deal with family, work, retirement, telling people, etc.
Offer tips on how to develop a mental wellness health plan
Examine how mediation can be a component in maintaining mental wellness.
