Last year we developed a self-advocacy toolkit, designed to help you fight for your rights when accessing treatment or when facing issues at work/in education, or with housing. The toolkit has been available to download (in full or in part) from our website for the last year, and has been a really useful tool for many people.
We have now expanded the toolkit to include lots of useful information about the Equality Act 2010, how it can help protect you from discrimination, and how it can be used to support you at work or in other situations where your OCD/BDD may impact your life. It also includes useful worksheets which you can use to help you advocate for yourself.
You can find this new information here!
We would love to hear your feedback, both on this new section of the toolkit, and also on the document as a whole!
