- Functional Movement Disorders

    eg Functional Tremor/Functional Dystonia

- Dissociative (non-epileptic) Seizures/Attacks

- Functional Visual Problems

- and others....


What is the forum for?

At present we would like to collect contact details from health professionals to inform them of    


1. Meetings specifically about Functional Neurological Disorders

2. Documents and news that may be important to developing services
