2021 Virtual OCD-UK Conference - Welcome to Hotel OCD-UK, flying the flag for recovery!


University, the Parrot, and Me: Studying with OCD

 Broadcast live on Sunday 28th November 2021

Speaker
Paula Duncan

Presentation subject

Studying with OCD has a unique set of challenges. It can be difficult to explain our needs to those around us and to find the right support to be able to work well in an academic setting. This presentation will share my personal experience at university - a ten year journey from dropping out of a course in first year to starting my PhD this autumn.

About the speaker
Despite only recently being diagnosed with OCD, I’ve lived with it since a young age. It took me a long time to complete my undergraduate degree largely owing to mental health challenges, but I am now enjoying being a PhD student at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, researching OCD and faith. My aim is to construct a research project that will share the experiences of people living with OCD.
