I can’t tell you how excited I am to be hosting Jeff Bell this Sunday night. I met Jeff at the OCD Conference in LA over the summer, and I was struck by his compassion and patience. He really is a tireless advocate, and his story of overcoming the worst of his OCD symptoms is fascinating whether you know much about OCD or not.
If you live in the Twin Cities, I hope you’ll join us!
