Event description

About this event


The effect of the stigma towards DID and OSDD can lead to shame, guilt, and the fear that you are broken; set up for failure in life. This conference is created to show your system otherwise by surrounding you with other systems on different paths of life that STILL made their dream career happen, healthy marriage, children, system communication, education, and the continuous journey of improving mental health possible. This event is to connect you to long-term recovery reosuces with specializing mental health professionals that ACTUALLY understand DID & OSDD.

You all ARE entitled to life.
