PSPA Ireland was setup in 2012 and is dedicated to helping people with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD), both degenerative brain diseases with causes unknown and for which there are currently no cures.
PSPA Ireland support people who have or are affected by Progressive Supranuclear Palsy or Corticobasal Degeneration. We seek to make a positive difference to the lives of people with these conditions. The voluntary organisation runs support groups, provides information, and advice to families and healthcare professionals by telephone or email.
We raise awareness of PSP and CBD on a local and national level and work in partnership with the relevant bodies and umbrella organisations in Ireland, Northern Ireland and in the United Kingdom. We advocate on behalf of our members for the provision of needs and services.
PSPA Ireland supports research to better understand the possible causes of PSP and CBD, to find ways to achieve earlier and better diagnosis and to develop treatments that could potentially slow down, or even halt, the progression of these diseases.
Working for a world free of PSP: All of those involved with PSPA Ireland are committed to supporting, providing and developing services for people with PSP and CBD.
Members receive regular updates, information on current activities and items of interest, notification of support group meetings and the Newsletter which is free to our members.
