Seattle Screening of “UNSTUCK”: an OCD kids movie
A Movie for All Ages. Free, Open to all
Sat, May 19 at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT
Glaser Auditorium, Swedish Medical Center747 Broadway
Seattle, 98122 United States + Google Map
Join us for a free community, family-friendly screening and discussion of UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie followed by discussion groups for children, parents, teens and adults with professionals specializing in the treatment of OCD.
There is a lot of confusion about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). To uncover what OCD is, and what it isn’t, UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie focuses on an unlikely group of experts: Kids.
By documenting six unique OCD stories, UNSTUCK reveals the complexity of this mental health disorder, and allows kids and teens to explain how they faced their fears and regained control of their lives.
You will be amazed what kids can teach you about OCD.

We are so excited to celebrate as Sam launches a new album – and you’re invited to the party! The whole family is welcome – so bring the kids, just send the kids alone, whatever works for you – but all are welcome! Refreshments will be served. Feel free to bring a friend! Saturday, September 9that 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30). Blakely Hall in Issaquah Highlands.
Sam will perform some of the songs live and some we will be played in their produced entirety – and Sam will talk about his feelings and intent behind this very personal album. It is all about his struggle with severe OCD – and he will hopefully shed some light on this often debilitating mental illness.
The event is FREE, but RSVP is requested so that Highlands Council and Highlands Youth Advisory Board (who are amazingly sponsoring this event for Sam!) know how many people are coming. Click here to RSVP for your free tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3066507
First, at 3:30pm, providers in the OCD and anxiety field will be gathering to share resources and connect. We look forward to the opportunity to meet, and to support each other as we grow our community of OCD professionals.
Immediately following, at 4:30, we are honored to have the experienced improvisers of ComedySportz leading a free workshop focused on the benefits of Improv for Anxiety. This event is co-hosted by OCD Washington and CSz Seattle, the folks who perform ComedySportz, and will be held in the performance space at the Atlas Theater.
At this event, attendees are invited to play games with experienced improvisers who will illustrate how improv can be fun and how it can help individuals manage their anxiety better. Individuals with OCD and related illnesses, their loved ones and professional members of our community are all welcome to the Improv for Anxiety event and its FREE!
