How I Founded The Company I Needed During My Journey with OCD

Like 2.3% of U.S. adults, I live with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), a largely misunderstood mental health condition that can have a devastating impact. Some international research suggests that people with OCD may be up to ten times more likely to die by suicide compared to the general population. The good news, though, is that OCD can be

Neurofeedback: A Complement to Talk Therapy and Medication

How many people have tried talk therapy and made progress, but ultimately felt that it wasn’t enough? How many patients have tried medications and still experienced severe symptoms? Probably too many to count. What if there were a way of reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma and attention problems that could complement talk therapy

Veterans’ Mental Health Myths That Should Be Dispelled

To date, approximately 52,000 service members have been physically wounded in recent military conflicts. It’s also estimated as many as over 1 million live with invisible wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), depression, anxiety and other combat stress.

The Truth About Dissociative Identity Disorder

I’ve found that people are usually surprised to learn that a friend or family member (or anyone they’ve known for many years) has dissociative identity disorder (DID). Oftentimes, they expect that such a diagnosis would yield obvious, visible symptoms — behaviors that surely couldn’t be concealed from a friend or relative. DID, however, can

How Social Media Is Changing the Way We Think About Mental Illness

As the 1 in 5 adults living with mental illness know all too well, accessing resources and receiving adequate care can be a challenging process. A 2017 study published in “Psychological Science in the Public Interest” found that 40% of the 60 million people living with mental illness go without treatment. The study identified two perception-related barriers to

The Not So Pretty Version of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

"Oh, trust me, I get it. I am so OCD, too!” This cringeworthy statement, which far too many of us have heard in casual conversation, is generally followed by the speaker enthusiastically disclosing their “embarrassing” quirks, centered around color coding file folders or preferring an exceptionally clean kitchen. Perhaps they wanted their home to match

From Villain to Hero: Reimagining the Role of Mental Health in Pop Culture

Stephen King is a master storyteller. His novels, spanning the genres of crime, fantasy, science fiction and horror, have sold nearly 400 million copies, and his work has been adapted into critically acclaimed films and television series. Personally, one of my favorite films of all time is “The Shawshank Redemption.” I often find myself
