In episode 212 of The OCD Stories podcast I interviewed Stephen Smith who has kindly agreed to share his story with us. Stephen is the founder and CEO of NOCD. 

Stephen Smith

Stephen talks about his OCD story, dealing with shame, hitting rock bottom, contemplating suicide, figuring out it was OCD, realising there was hope, finding OCD treatment, getting a diagnosis, creating NOCD, dealing with a relapse, mental well-being, how it affects him now, creating a new relationship with his thoughts, dealing with stigma, what Stephen would have liked to have known at the start of his journey, words of hope and much much more. Hope it helps.
