Brain and Behavior Research Foundation

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is a New York-based nonprofit organization that has awarded nearly $300 million in mental illness research grants since 1987 to scientists around the world.  They are “committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness,” and offer free webinars, information resources and activities to the public.

I’ve recently been asked by a representative of this foundation to spread the word about an upcoming free webinar about OCD. This webinar is part of their Tuesday series that features leading mental health researchers presenting the latest in new technologies, diagnostic tools, early intervention strategies and next generation therapies for mental illness. I am happy to help spread the word:

The following webinar will be presented on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. ET:

   “OCD & Anxiety: Symptoms, Treatment & How to Cope” with Dr. Helen Blair Simpson

If you have the opportunity to listen to this presentation, I’d love to hear your thoughts about it!

    The webinar was outstanding and Dr. Simpson presented the data in a concise and interesting manner. It is amazing there’s no charge to participate. What a wonderful resource. The webinar is recorded if you missed it.

    How do I listen to the recording?

    • Hi Betty, I just went to the site and there is a link to click on for “past recordings.” Once you click on it, you will see the OCD one listed (I checked and it is there). Good luck, and let us know what you think of the webinar!
