Turn Adversity to Advocacy
Each year brings opportunities to raise awareness about BDD and OCD—the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Awareness 5K Walk, the Annual OCD Conference, and OCD Awareness Week. Each makes publicly visible these invisible brain disorders that cripple the lives of sufferers, their families, and friends. Collectively as a society, we are as healthy as the hardest hit of our members, so we’ve got work to do. To remove the stigma of brain disorders and to help cure them, we invite you to get involved: become a member of the International OCD Foundation, volunteer, attend an event, or make a donation.
