Drumroll, please… and the winner is:
Melanie Lefebvre — Cooking up OCD Awareness #OCDWeek
My video features me as a chef in a pretend cooking show, cooking up recipes for OCD awareness. I’m hoping to connect with people’s curiosity while highlighting types of OCD that the general population isn’t necessarily familiar with, such as harm OCD and scrupulosity OCD. The ingredients consist of items that represent these types of OCD. I also wanted to portray a message of hope so I featured a recipe for exposure and response prevention. I present my chef hat to the camera at the end of the video to encourage people to become a chef of their own and learn more about different types of OCD after the cooking lesson is finished. I also self-disclose as having OCD in the beginning of the video to show that it is not something to be ashamed of.
And congrats to all of the finalists! We had so many great entries this year. Please watch them all and share on your social media networks to keep spreading the message of OCD awareness all year long.
