Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) Support Network
PSP is a rare degenerative neurological condition often presenting with similar symptoms to Parkinson’s. The condition begins slowly and continues to get worse (progressive), causes weakness (palsy) by damaging certain parts of the brain above pea-sized structures called nuclei that control eye movements (supranuclear). It is sometimes called Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome.
An informal PSP Support Network for people with PSP and their families is co-ordinated by Sue Lacy. The support network offers resource information and telephone enquiries to help network people with PSP, carers and families.
