Referral to Services Supported by the FND Program Society

The services we support are accessible by referrals only. Please consult your neurologist (or other specialist in your area of concern) to discuss if our supported services are indicated for you. Thank you.

Once you are referred by your neurologist, we will review your needs based on the information sent to us. If there is sufficient evidence that you suffer from Functional Neurological Disorder and that our services may meet your needs, you will be offered an initial evaluation. We will discuss with you services supported by this program, with the hope that we will be able to contribute to your care.
