YOPD and Birmingham


This is my first post.

Is there anyone with early onset/YOPD around North Birmingham / Sutton Coldfield ?

Could really do with some local support as feeling very isolated and scared right now.


Hi RM,
If you go onto the Information and Support section on the Parkinson’s UK site and scroll to the bottom of the page you will find a post for local support. You type in your post code and it will tell you everything available near you.
I am sure you will find something there. Has you PD nurse not advised you? They are usually very supportive.
Please don’t be scared, you are not alone.

Take care
