Ryan Bernstein, OCD to Me: An Anthology of Anxieties

October 11, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us in welcoming Ryan Bernstein, who will read from his non-fiction work OCD to Me: An Anthology of Anxieties.

In OCD to Me, sixty courageous individuals open their hearts and share what having OCD feels like. The book features a foreword by Dr. Jenny Yip, a clinical psychologist, author, speaker, nationally recognized OCD expert, and founder of the Renewed Freedom Center in Los Angeles, California. Two Ph.D psychologists, Drs. James Claiborn and Fred Penzel, who are also OCD leaders, contribute chapters filled with valuable treatment information, tips, and practical advice about how to manage OCD. All proceeds from book sales will be donated to the International OCD Foundation. When you purchase a book you support the OCD community.

Ryan Bernstein is a high school student with OCD. He is the founder and facilitator of Hand in Hand, a weekly OCD support group where he helps teens at his school who struggle with anxiety learn new coping skills. As a national youth advocate for OCD, Ryan seeks to educate through his writing and public-speaking. He has been featured in national blogs and newsletters including the International OCD Foundation, OCD Talks, and The Peace of Mind Foundation. Ryan encourages taking charge of OCD by helping others.
