Functional Neurological Disorder Program
What is FND?
Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is used to describe neurologic symptoms incompatible with an established medical illness. Many terms have been used to describe FND, from hysteria to conversion disorder. As knowledge of this condition has increased, it is now understood that FND stems from biological, environmental and psychological vulnerabilities.
The Functional Neurological Disorder Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford treats patients suffering from FND with a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach.
- Consultation Clinic: Clients receive a clinical evaluation resulting in an individualized treatment plan
- Therapy Groups: Virtual and in-person, designed specifically for clients with FND
- Individual Psychotherapy: Select opportunity for time-limited services
Patients completing time-limited FND treatment at Stanford or unable to participate with on-site therapy will receive treatment plans designed around the local resources available to the client.
