“As a person with OCD, it is hard to believe in 2024 OCD is still so misunderstood. Participating in the Akron Canton 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk in 2023 brought awareness to many by having it in a very public place, The Akron Zoo.  Walkers and their families walked with no shame.  It was a great feeling being with others who know what one goes through many days.”


Person with OCD

“I began to seek out the IOCDF and search for resources during a particularly difficult bout of obsessive-compulsive symptoms. I struggle with many kinds of intrusive thoughts, and especially those relating to sexual violence bring me a lot of shame. During this time, I was able to find an online support group that provided me with company and solidarity. I am immensely grateful for that. I was also able to participate in research studies to advance OCD care in the future, which motivated me to continue on.”

“Now, OCD Midwest has grown from myself and Charlie as the leaders to an organization with a full board. I am proud of my role in the development of OCD Midwest, and I wish it nothing but the best. ”
