Support Groups

Support groups can often play an important role for people living with a chronic neurological disorder like Parkinson’s disease.

Please note that some of the support groups in West Virginia have paused their meetings due to the pandemic. Please call the contact person listed for each support group before attending a meeting. If you know of other support groups in the state, please let us know so we can add them to our list.
