Understanding and Getting Help For OCD: Discussion with Experts
October 13, 2016 at 7:00 am - 8:30 pm EDT
In a free program on OCD for the community, Robert Milan and Jeff Sapyta will share information regarding current developments in the treatment of OCD and then focus on answering your questions regarding OCD in children, teenagers and adults. For current and former IOCDF members, an informal meeting at 6:30pm, prior to the event, will be an opportunity to network with fellow members, share plans for future OCD North Carolina events, and learn from members how you would like OCD North Carolina to further enrich the OCD community.
