Live with Orchard: OCD and Future-Forward Treatment

We've teamed up with our friends at Orchard OCD for a livestream with journalist and parent to a child with OCD, Sean Fletcher, and Sunday Times Bestseller of The Man Who Couldn’t Stop: The Truth About OCD, David Adam. Sean and David will be sharing their personal experiences with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and discuss why they're supporting Orchard's crowdfunding campaign into psilocybin research as a treatment for OCD. Bring questions!

About Ask the Advocates

Millions and millions of people around the world live with mental illness, but their stories are not all the same. They come from different places, cultures, communities and countries. They like different things, have different kinds of friends, and cope with their symptoms in different ways. When talking about mental health, it's important that we highlight these differences and explore how they shape our experiences. Mental health narratives should be as diverse and unique as we are.

Ask the Advocates is an ongoing Q&A series with outspoken mental health sufferers from around the world. Guests will open up about their experiences living with a wide range of conditions and symptoms, and answer your questions about pain, growth, healing, treatment and more. Before each episode, spend some time learning about the scheduled guest and come prepared with questions that are relevant to what they've been through.
