As the Communications Manager for the IOCDF, I am very excited to be participating in my first 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk in Boston. Since joining the foundation I have become much more aware of what OCD really is and how it impacts the lives of those who are affected by it. Most importantly, I have come to understand how great the need for awareness and advocacy is for OCD and related disorders.
Funds raised through the walk help us provide treatment and resources for those who struggle with OCD, and their families. They will also help us to continue to implement programs aimed at training treatment providers on OCD and related disorders (including Hoarding Disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder), which increases treatment availability all over the country and world.
I am hope you will help me in supporting this cause.
