The second half of the event will feature a Q&A segment with each of the speakers available to answer any questions you may have!
We will then conclude with a message from our board members.
Since this event is virtual, all are welcome to attend–from anywhere! The event is perfect for individuals with OCD, their family and loved ones, and professionals wanting to learn more about OCD treatment. It is also a fantastic opportunity to educate the public on OCD. Please invite family and loved ones who would benefit from learning more about this disorder.
We will be sending out the specific link to the event for those on our OCD SoCal mailing list. If you or someone you feel would be interested in attending are not on that list, please email us at: info@OCDSoCal.org.
