Depression and Parkinson's DiseaseClick on the image to download fact sheet.

About half of the people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease will experience depression at some stage. Severe depression is seen in about 20 to 40 per cent of cases. Sometimes, the depression can be more disabling than the Parkinson’s itself, therefore correct diagnosis and treatment are essential for maintaining a high quality of life. Depression is treatable and a person can recover with the right advice and help.
