YOPD is a very complex condition – a syndrome, in fact – where symptoms vary and change over time. Anyone visiting this site is likely to have been diagnosed with Parkinson under the age of 50.
3D effects on YOPD
We invite views and questions from anyone in the YOPD community who has experience of depression, dyskinesia or dystonia.

The charity for those with YOPD run by those with YOPD*  *Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease diagnosed in those under 50

Spotlight YOPD has three key aims:

• To have YOPD treated as the separate rare condition it is – with NICE guidelines outlining its specific symptoms, treatment and life challenges.
• To have YOPD understood as a long-term condition – with emphasis on a holistic approach of exercise, diet, counselling and better treatment options.
• To give the newly diagnosed, and those around them, the strength and support to take control of their own condition with the promise of a better future.
