Community Conversations

Community Conversations

IOCDF National Advocate Ethan Smith leans on his own lived experiences navigating OCD to create a candid space for anyone (from anywhere) to discuss the OCD and related disorders issues most important to them. You choose the topics, you ask the questions—live, in real time! Whether you just want to listen in, support others in the chat, ask questions, or talk about current events and how they’re impacting your life, you’re the community, and this is your conversation. Together, we can educate, reduce stigma, and most importantly, provide hope.
