Description

For the final day of Pride Month, we're chatting with two wonderful queer humans: Ali Naimo and Maia Fattahi, the co-founders of Hard Quirk, a nonprofit for OCD advocacy and support.

Have you ever made a joke about how you're "so OCD," because you like organizing your bookshelf? Yeah, that's not exactly what it's like to live with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. And you're not alone - many mental health professionals don't even understand exactly with OCD is and how it shows up. In this episode, Ali and Maia share their own lived experiences with the disorder, from diagnosis to treatment to leading support groups for others through Hard Quirk.
