Elysse Lescarbeau (@⁠ocd.or.just.me⁠) has A LOT of lived experience with mental health issues with diagnoses. Elysse had been struggling in silence due to a lack of OCD awareness – she thought her obsessive thoughts and mental only compulsions were “just her”. A year after being hospitalized for SI, with a long overdue OCD diagnosis and treatment under her belt, she hopes to offer others the knowledge she wished she’d had – how OCD can present very differently from common media portrayals, why gold standard therapy techniques for OCD can go beyond treating acute symptoms, and how recovery and a less anxious life IS possible. 

Follow her on Instagram @⁠ocd.or.just.me⁠ and check out her free resource – the Values in Action Digital Workbook (⁠https://stan.store/ocdorjustme/p/free-find-my-values-worksheet⁠) – for her tried and true techniques to take value-driven action everyday, even while anxious.
