Lauren McKeaney

Picking Me
CEO
Chicago, IL
After almost losing her leg to dermatillomania aka skin picking disorder, Lauren McKeaney went from silent sufferer to adamant advocate of the mental illness. In 2016 Lauren founded the only nonprofit focused on skin picking disorder, the Picking Me Foundation in Chicago, dedicated to providing awareness, support, resources and community, to strugglers, their supporters, and educators alike. Lauren shares her story, foundation, and management strategies worldwide, encouraging individuals to choose themselves over the mental illness that chose them, by #PickingMe over Skin Picking. She is the recipient of both mental health advocacy and nonprofit business awards and is honored to serve these communities. Her sweet pup Bug can most always be found by her side.
