Peer support helps many people with tardive dyskinesia handle the stigma. Check out support groups in your community or online that are focused on dealing with TD, the medication that caused your TD, or your underlying condition: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, or Parkinson’s disease. Many videos are also available online that feature people with TD sharing their stories—how it’s affected them socially, ways their relationships have suffered, and what has helped them re-engage.
