We are halfway to our goal!
May 16, 2017
Our clinic was founded with the hope of increasing access to evidence based treatment for persons suffering with OCD. We hope to bring increased awareness not only to the prevalence of OCD, but also to the hope that finding exposure and response prevention treatment can change your life! All funds are in support of the International Obsessive Compulsive Foundation.
In 2012, Denis Asselin walked over 500 miles — or roughly one million steps — from his home in Cheyney, PA, to Boston, MA, in memory of his son Nathaniel. Nathaniel took his own life at just 24, after a long struggle with severe body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) and OCD. After Nathaniel’s death, Denis embarked on a pilgrimage to honor Nathaniel’s memory and to raise awareness about the disorder that stole his young son’s life. To carry on this tradition, the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk was created the following year in the same spirit of raising awareness, funds, and hope. It is in this spirit of hope that we invite you to join us. Let's see how far we can go.
