Mental Illness Recovery Q&A with The Mighty

For OCD Week, I joined The Mighty for a live Q&A on their Facebook page all about my journey with recovery from mental illness. I usually keep my videos focused on mental health and where I’m going now, so I don’t often talk about the specific symptoms I struggled with but in this video I go more in-depth into what it was like deep in the mental illness hole, and what was involved with getting out of that hole:

  • Mark,

    You are one of my favorite people! The guidance, advice and help you offer is beyond useful to The OCD community. I am continuing to learn & grow through my recovery and a lot of my courage comes from your story.

    If you ever offer a class in the CT / NYC area, please let me know.

    • Thank you, Alison! Enjoy the steps ahead as you’re creating your story 🙂

      I’ve got a book coming out in the US this coming fall so hopefully I’ll have a chance to travel around. I’ll post about any US travel on here when we get closer to the fall.
