Dr Vidhya Mohandas Senior Psychiatrist has added that addressing comorbid conditions like depression and anxiety, which affect up to 30% of Parkinson’s patients, is equally vital for improved outcomes.

This collaborative effort aims to provide patients and caregivers with a platform to seek clarity on both pharmacological and non-pharmacological aspects of Parkinson’s management.
