OCD and Self Injury Support Group

Self-injury can be a coping mechanism for people with OCD. The shame and secrecy surrounding self-injury prevent many people from seeking treatment. This support group will be a safe, non judgemental environment for attendees to share their own experiences with self injury while also hearing from other attendees. The facilitators will share their own experiences, how therapy helped identify triggers for self injury and the strategies they learned in therapy to stop. As a group, we will strategize on how to educate and break down the personal stigma that many who self injure deal with.
