We all know that mental health is just as important as physical health and key to our overall well-being. As a way to celebrate mental health, OCD Week is recognized in October every year in order to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues as well as debunk some of the myths related to OCD. During this time, individuals, community groups, and clinics pause to educate, fundraise, and raise awareness about mental health. One local clinic joining the conversation this month is Lukin Center for Psychotherapy, a family-owned psychotherapy practice with offices in Hoboken, Jersey City, Ridgewood, Englewood, Montclair, and Westfield. The practice provides compassionate, high-quality, evidence-based therapy and treats patients of all ages with an individualized approach.

In honor of International OCD Awareness Week, Lukin Center for Psychotherapy will be hosting an Instagram Live on Thursday, October 27th at 7PM. The live event will feature a few OCD specialists from the center who will talk about what OCD may look like plus treatment options provided by Lukin Center therapists.

We want to encourage everyone to take care of their mental health — and awareness is a key step for access to help.”

Understanding OCD

According to the experts at Lukin Center, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is more serious than being stressed about organization or germs, which is how it is often popularly mischaracterized. In reality, OCD refers to recurring thoughts and fears that cause you to perform certain behaviors over and over again. Both the thoughts and behaviors can feel out of control and can interfere significantly with daily activities. Symptoms of OCD can range from repeated checking and compulsive counting to unwanted or disturbing thoughts.

At Lukin Center, treatment is tailored to your symptoms and your experience. The qualified therapists can help you with focused interventions, concrete goals, and proven treatment options to help you find relief from your OCD symptoms and live your life the way you want to. As one of the largest mental health therapy practices in Northern New Jersey, Lukin Center gives you access to more highly trained therapists and a broader range of specialties — so you can get the help you need.
