How can counseling help with Parkinson's disease?

ANSWER

Parkinson's disease can have a big effect on you physically and mentally. Counseling can help with your symptoms, including depression. The disease also can affect the mental wellbeing of your loved ones.

If you’re depressed, your doctor may recommend that you be checked by a mental health specialist. With the assessment, your provider can come up with the right treatment plan.
