Jack Mental Health – An OCD Advocate and Support Group Facilitator
Kim quickly took up her cause as an advocate, speaker and support group facilitator for anxiety disorders such as OCD. Her goal was to reduce stigma while offering affirmation for families suffering from these ailments.
Jack often makes promises that are out of his reach and trusts in himself and his own judgment, leading him to make snap decisions and lead down unwise paths. This causes him to act impulsively and often makes for bad choices.
Early Life and Education
Jack was raised by his World War II veteran father who served as custodial supervisor of Cranston public school system; and homemaker mother who encouraged and enabled him to use GI Bill benefits to further his education and secure shelter for him and his siblings. Thanks to her hard work, Jack used the GI Bill and put a roof over his head.
Mental was honored with two varsity letters in basketball and four in baseball, earning himself the OAC Most Valuable Player title and setting school completion records during 1967.
He is an advocate for mental health and uses his platform to raise awareness. He encourages individuals who may be experiencing difficulty to seek professional assistance for treatment and seek medical help if they feel they require it.
Jack’s approach to working with clients involves listening closely to their hopes for the future, their sense of themselves and any experiences of trauma they may have endured. He is trained in various approaches such as CBT, Gottman Method and Prepare and Enrich.
Jack knows first-hand how mental illness can impact personal and professional performance, which he applies in workplace wellbeing where he was previously the wellbeing lead.
Kim took it upon herself to become an OCD advocate, speaker, blogger, and support group facilitator. Despite available resources and therapeutic interventions for OCD sufferers, there are still numerous regions and families underserved despite significant resources being made available; Kim believes it takes a team to change this reality; we want to be that team!

Jack’s mother Kim would do anything she could for her children; yet when Jack began suffering from OCD, she felt helpless and fearful that nothing could be done to help him.
