OCD Action is passionate about supporting other mental health organisations, and collaborating with them to ensure that together we are supporting as many people affected by OCD and related conditions as we possibly can. That's why we were so excited to be contacted by a brand new non-profit organisation - Mad Millennials. Co-founded by Charlotte Brockman and Lauren Bamford, the aim of Mad Millennials is to support the millennial generation with their mental health, through awareness, connection, events and peer-to-peer support.
Charlotte and Lauren met studying Psychology at the University of Liverpool. They both had a strong passion and interest in supporting people with mental health. Char, a singer-songwriter, is currently finishing her debut EP, which will be released later this year. Lauren went on to obtain a Clinical Psychology Masters and then went to work for NHS Derbyshire as a research assistant in self harm and suicide prevention. Lauren is now training to be a child and adolescent well-being practitioner and her growing clinical knowledge will continue to benefit the professional development of Mad Millennials. Prior to studying Psychology, Charlotte had her own personal experiences with mental ill health and OCD Action is a charity which has strong personal relevance to her.
We are excited to see this organisation grow and are sure it will be helpful to people living with all different mental health conditions, including OCD.
