On Monday the 18th of June , i shall be joining Mark Williams, and others on twitter discussing Father’s Mental Health from 7-8pm Bst. Around 7.30pm i will be discussing my experiences and knowledge about Paternal OCD and how it can manifest itself , during the maternal stages as a Father.
Over recent years , i have been involved with various talks via the NHS. about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and have engaged with various NHS trusts, and universities in helping to train future therapists and also medical students . I have also been heavily involved with research via the Department of Pyschiatry at the world famous Cambridge University.
I also am an awareness advocate for the UK’s leading charity for those that live with and care for with OCD. which is OCD.
