In episode 286 I interviewed Marion Maw who has kindly agreed to share her family story and advocacy in New Zealand.
In this episode I chat with Marion about her daughter’s OCD story, and her parent story, moral worries (scrupulosity), getting therapy for her daughter, what she learned as a parent of a child experiencing OCD, sharing common feelings together, getting started in advocacy, the advocacy initiatives she’s involved with in New Zealand, how she uses her unique experience to advocate, her experience of advocating, words of hope and much more. Hope it helps.
