Today on the purely ocd podcast, in honor of ocd awareness week, Kelley Franke, LMFT, and Lauren Rosen, LMFT, discuss their own journeys with OCD. But first- they discuss the first national campaign promoting OCD Awareness, directed by Ethan Smith and featuring a whole slew of advocates including Rev. Katie O'Dunne, Sean Shinnock Tia Wilson Uma Chatterjee and Kelley Franke herself. As a part of the awareness campaign, Biohaven also asked a number of advocates to share their stories. You can find both Kelley and Lauren’s on biohaven’s website: https://ocdtrials.com/what-if/. In the episode, Kelley talks about her experience with separation anxiety as a child and how it morphed over the years into Harm OCD. Lauren shares about her early years with Existential OCD and how Moral Scrupulosity finally got her a diagnosis and correct treatment. Please note: Kelley and Lauren do not endorse any medication in their capacity as psychotherapists or advocates. If you are interested in medication, you should speak with your physician. That said, Kelley and Lauren support the research being done and are all about helping to spread the word about what real OCD is and are so grateful to be a part of this campaign to promote awareness 🤍☺️
