African-Americans with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Volunteers needed for clinical interview

Join the online OCD, Anxiety and Mental Health Support Groups for free and talk to others who are facing the same challenges you are.

The University of Pennsylvania is conducting a study of African-Americans with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Recent research shows that African-Americans with OCD are not getting the most effective treatments. If you have OCD, we want to learn more about what this has been like for you and if you have ever tried to get help for your symptoms.

Participants will receive a free psychological evaluation, discussion of treatment options, and $100 in compensation.

The evaluation will involve completing some questionnaires and an interview with a professional clinician. No physical exam is required (i.e., no shots, needles, x-rays, or pills). Call our office at 215-746-3327 for a confidential phone screening to determine if you are eligible, and ask for Samantha Farris. You can also visit our website at black.ocdproject.org.

Anxiety and Everyday Activities

Volunteers needed for interview

Not enough is known about the everyday lives of people with anxiety and/or OCD. I am a researcher at the University of Southern Mississippi working with researchers at the University of Florida and the University of Kentucky. I am interested in talking with you about how you came to know you had anxiety and/or OCD, and if it has affected your everyday activities at work or with friends or with family. I would like to know how you decided what treatment to use if any, and how you use the Internet to talk with others or find out information about anxiety and/or OCD. I am asking people to talk to me about these issues....either through e-mail, online chat, or phone. I would never use your real name. And you don't have to have an official diagnosis. But you do need to be at least age 18. For more information, please contact: Dr. Dana Fennell at [email protected] or [email protected]

Study for People Who Self-Injure

Volunteers needed for survey

Research on stressful early parent-child relationships has demonstrated increased sensitivity to anxiety in adulthood by way of altered dopaminergic and serotonergic systems, it is questioned what type of effect caffeine might have on a person who has supersensitive dopamine receptors. This question arises because caffeine affects both dopamine and serotonin levels in the brain.

Caffeine is known to raise dopamine levels and produce stress and anxiety in certain individuals logically suggesting that individuals who have dopaminergic receptor sensitivity might be more vulnerable to anxiety and at-risk for self-injuring. The study below aims to examine the relationships between caffeine, self-injury, and early family dynamics.

By participating in the study you may help contribute to society gaining a more holistic perspective of self-injury and in helping to develop more comprehensive treatment modalities for people dealing with self-injurious behavior. Learn more about self-injury...

This study has been approved by the International Review Board at Alliant International University and is being conducted by Dr. Steven Jella' and Cassandra Curtis.

Help for Compulsive Hoarders

Volunteers needed for doumentary

Compulsive hoarding is a very serious problem affecting millions of Americans and their friends and families. But little is known about this disorder, and too often hoarders are misunderstood and can't find the help they need. A major cable network is casting for a groundbreaking new documentary television series that will help shed much needed light on this complicated and underreported condition.

Each hour long episode will follow two individuals who suffer from this disease thru a crisis situation that is directly caused by their hoarding. We will provide free services for the hoarder, such as a mental health support, professional organizers, and professional clean up and/or junk removal services. Each case will be considered on an individual basis, and services will be tailored to fit individual needs. Our professionals all have experience treating this population and are appropriately trained and credentialed.

We are looking for individuals willing to spend 3-5 days sharing their stories on camera. We understand that compulsive hoarding is an extremely emotional and difficult disorder, and it is our hope that by sharing the personal stories of our guests it will help others realize they are not alone. We will also share the right way for families and friends to approach a hoarders to, hopefully, avoid dangerous living environments.

What we are looking for:

  1. Individuals willing to tell their story.
  2. Individuals motivated to change by a ticking clock, or crisis caused by hoarding that needs to be addressed immediately.
  3. We need to show how the hoarding has impacted friends and/or loved ones. These individuals will need to appear on camera and share their side of the story.
  4. Non-stereotypical cases.

Whatever your crisis, whatever your story, we are interested in listening.

If you or someone you know is a compulsive hoarder please contact us immediately at: [email protected] or go to our website at www.hoadersdocumentary.com to learn more information about the show and to apply.
