Welcome to OCD Awareness Week!
From October 8 to 14, do all you can to increase awareness of the reality and meaning of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Sadly, so many still do not know what OCD entails, choosing instead of fall back on stereotypes and “jokes” about this debilitating and very real disorder.
I am in Utah for a good chunk of this week doing my part to spread knowledge and facts about OCD as I promote awareness and my new book, The OCD Mormon.
On Monday night, I will be speaking about mental illness at a “Feminist Family Home Evening” in Provo at 6 p.m. Please contact me if you would like the address. If you can’t make that, I am also speaking at an OCD Awareness Event at Mindset Family Therapy in Provo on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. (picture from their Instagram account)
I will also be featured on KSL Channel 5 at 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning (Utah time).
