OCD and Multicultural Stigma

This is a support group for those who do not receive the support or help from family or friends due to multicultural differences or cultural stigma. They can come from any culture whether it be Asian, Spanish, European, Mediterranean. Examples of lack of support may range from not being able to talk about the disorder, fighting about it, or being classified as just 'crazy'. This may be due to lack of knowledge and awareness, shame, cultural morals and upbringing, or restrictions. This group would be an open forum for those who would like to share their stories and know that they are not alone.
