    Hello everyone! I thought I would introduce myself for my first forum post. I am a 22 year old Student and health professional who is passionate about mental health. I have suffered for many years with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I have recently started a podcast which covers many issues, some episodes are more light hearted and humorous and others delve a little bit deeper. My most recent is on my struggles with OCD. This is the first time I have spoken publicly or in this magnitude about my condition however I believe it is absolutely vital for awareness and more conversations to be ignited surrounding this highly misunderstood and stigmatised condition. If I had something like this to listen to when I was 13 and first diagnosed I think I would have felt a lot more heard and less alone.
    I am sending so much love and strength to everyone in this community and I’m looking forward to this journey!

    much love to all 💙💙
