Multicultural Stigma and OCD Support Group

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This a support group for those who may not get support or help from family and friends due to multicultural differences or cultural stigma. Examples may range anywhere from not being able to talk about the disorder, fighting about it, not being able to tell family you have OCD, or being classified as

Together, we can help each other find resources to help reverse lack of awareness, understanding, shame, and stigma.
