MENTOR MENU

“I believe the Mentor Program will benefit many people. It’s good to have a knowledgeable, well-trained person to discuss the varied PD symptoms which can at times be overwhelming. Thank you for listening as well as sending information to me. I am very happy that you are my mentor.”

An Education Program on Parkinson’s for Mental Health Professionals

We have created a comprehensive, 6-CE unit program to introduce clinical psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and social workers to the medical, psychological, and social intricacies involved with working with people with Parkinson’s.

 

Open your practice to a world of possiblilties!

Psychologists, MFTs, Social Workers:

WE NEED YOU!

San Diego’s movement disorder neurologists need many more mental health professionals for their patients.

“A powerful population to work with.”

“We’re so much more than caregiver and patient.”

“People really lose their former identity of who they were and everything they were able to do.”

The People with Angel Wings
