Anxiety and Depression in Individuals with Parkinson's Disease with and without Deep Brain Stimulation.

(Dec 2006) Research has found that there is a greater prevalence of anxiety and depression in people with Parkinson’s disease (PWP) compared to the general population. The goal of this project was to learn more about anxiety and depression in individuals with Parkinson's disease who have and have not undergone Deep Brain Stimulation of the Subthalamic Nucleus (DBS-STN), and to study the relationship between anxiety and depression.

My goal when starting, which grew into,
is to continually serve the Parkinson’s community. 

Our surveys have always been and will always remain free. 

We will never charge anyone to participate in our surveys, and
we will never charge anyone a fee to download the results of our survey.

Because we are also committed to helping to fund the most
promising research to help find the cure to Parkinson’s,
we appreciate any donation to The Parkinson Alliance
