Voices of Recovery: Episode 3


Stephen Smith is the founder of NOCD, a company that exists to bring support and treatment to people dealing with obsessive-compulsive disorder, commonly known as OCD. He talked with NAMI Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth about developing the disorder, struggling with it for many years, finally finding an effective way to treat it, and then starting a business to help other people going through the same struggle.

This conversation was part of Dr. Duckworth’s research for the book, You Are Not Alone: The NAMI Guide to Navigating Mental Health–With Advice from Experts and Wisdom from Real People and Families. Hear more episodes of this and other podcasts and nami.org/podcast.
