Access to Proper Treatment: An International Perspective

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

Four OCD advocates from around the world discuss common struggles regarding access to proper care- including common barriers and pitfalls such as cost, misconceptions of OCD, lack of training and knowledge, and stigma. Personal struggles and advocacy work will be shared as well. In addition, we will open up the floor to the audience to share their own treatment journeys as well as pose the questions: What would an ideal mental healthcare system look like for people with OCD, and how can we as an international community promote and support that?
