A support and information space for your kids

For your kids

YOP-X is working to create a welcoming space where kids can openly discuss young onset Parkinson’s and ask any questions they may have. We will be adding resources as we identify the areas that kids would like YOP-X to focus on. 

In the meantime, Parkinson’s Foundation have a great page here.

Children of people with Parkinson’s up to the age of 25 are classified as young carers. There are various young carer supports in Australia including: the Young Carers Network and Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800.

Make sure you register them on the Carer’s Gateway to access services and supports. 

Relationships Australia have some tools and a program to help families including their Family Check In tool and the Family Connect program that sets children up for success and good mental health.
