    • Emotional well being
    • How a YOPD diagnosis can affect mental health
    • Common manifestations of a YOPD diagnosis
    • The role of meaning in life and psychological flexibility

    Monthly Member Community Gathering

    June 27, 2023 - 7:00 - 8:00 PM EDT

    On the fourth Tuesday of each month, YOPN members come together to learn, engage, and support one another.  It's a great opportunity to connect with fellow members, share experiences and insights about living with YOPD,  discuss personal challenges as well as potential opportunities, and learn how others thrive beyond diagnosis.  This is your safe space - a place you can be real with others who understand what you're experiencing.

    Don't miss this opportunity to connect with YOPN members and explore what's possible as you create your own path forward.
