Janet Singer

Janet Singer is an advocate for OCD awareness, that obsessive-compulsive disorder, no matter how severe, is treatable. At age 18, her son suffered from OCD so debilitating he could not eat. Today, thanks to exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy, he is living life to the fullest. Janet recounts her family’s story in her book, Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery. She also writes regularly for PsychCentral.com and Mentalhelp.net, and has been published on many other web sites including Beyond OCD and Mad in America. She started her own blog, ocdtalk (www.ocdtalk.wordpress.com).
