Turn Your Secrets Into Surviving

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Battling OCD is hard enough, why must we keep it a secret? What's the fear? Why must we hide our struggle from others, carrying the burden of truth alone? People suffering from cancer to MS can comfortably and openly seek support and treatment for their illness. Why can't we? Well, we should... and can. This interactive panel explores the reasons why sufferers and families fear disclosing. You'll learn how to work through your debilitating feelings and free yourself from secrets. Who to tell about OCD and how to tell them, all in an effort to make extraordinary positive changes in your life.
