Terry takes to the airwaves about OCD

As well as World Mental Health Day, October marks OCD Awareness Week (9-15 October). OCD is a serious psychiatric condition that is estimated to affect 1.2% of the population, making it one of the most common mental health issues.

Second Step’s very own Terry Starr has been open about living with OCD to raise awareness of the issue. This weekend he is taking to the airwaves on South Bristol’s BASE Radio in a special edition of the “Second Step Recovery Tunes” show, talking about his life and experience of living with OCD. The show will go out on BASE Radio’s loop several times over the coming month at Base Radio Bristol.

Terry is also guesting on the region’s only regular lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender magazine programme, “ShoutOut” on Thursday 13th October. In a 10 minute interview, he will be talking about how everyone has a modicum of OCD, and how treatment and medication work.

If you would like any resources on OCD, please email Terry on Terence.starr@second-step.co.uk
