Support Groups

Whether you are newly diagnosed with Parkinson's or have been living with PD for years, it helps to talk to others who are going through the same thing.  Not every group is right for every person. They may serve certain populations also (caregivers, young onset, religious affiliation) so we urge you to visit more than one group if you aren't feeling a comfortable match.  Please see our events page for current virtual and in person meetings.

Before visiting any of the support groups below, it is advised that you verify the time and location with the contact. To find groups outside the Orange County area, check the Resource page on the Parkinson Movement Disorder Alliance site.
