Does anyone know if any support groups ANYWHERE for people living with a loved one's PD?

Hello, good question, I've looked into it before and haven't found much in regards to in person groups. Out of the FOG is the best support I've found specific to PD. There are support groups for family members of someone with a mental illness. but, they are not specific to PD.

I haven't found one either but there certainly is a need for them. This is a great group to find support and help in the meantime.

There's one in Toronto run by CAMH... you can find details online (if you live in the area).
