In this section, we have compiled different sorts of information (articles, videos, podcast, online forum) to help HD families adjust to this diagnosis and get to know the HD global community. You will find valuable resources that provide psychological support, as well as practical tips to better cope with HD challenges. We believe that the more tools you have to help you face HD, the better quality of life and well-being you will achieve.

Because we understand the importance of building the capacities of health care providers to understand HD and address HD complexity, we added to this section useful contents to support professionals in their daily practice.
