“Recognize Mental Illness Awareness Week” will take place October 6 to 12 at the Mattapoisett Library. Adults and youth are invited to a free screening of “Unstuck: an OCD Kids Movie” on Wednesday, October 9 at 6:30 pm. “Unstuck” is a short documentary that explains obsessive compulsive disorder through the eyes of children and their families. This educational and inspiring film follows a group of kids through recovery as they explain what OCD is and how they learn to face their fears and take their lives back.

A panel with knowledge and experience in the field of OCD treatment will make a brief presentation and will welcome comments after the film. The panel will include Caitlin White, LICSW, who is a Senior Clinical Social Worker at McLean Hospital’s Child and Adolescent OCD Institute, where she works with children and families with OCD and related disorders; and Morgan Browning, BA/BS, a Community Residence Counselor at McLean Hospital’s Child and Adolescent OCD Institute, as well as a researcher with labs at Brown University, University of Florida, and McLean Hospital.
