BRINGING HOARDING DISORDER OUT OF THE CLOSET

Monday, April 16, 2018, 7:00 - 8:30 PM

Severe hoarding often disrupts one’s ability to cook, sleep, groom, and stay within one’s budget. It may be difficult to escape the home in a fire or other emergency and increases the risk of being evicted. This interactive session will provide a better understanding of and compassion for those whose lives are impacted by Hoarding Disorder.

Learn about:

  • the new DSM-V classification and co-occurring disorders
  • the impact of hoarding behavior on one’s daily life and on their loved ones
  • the burden that it may place on community resources
  • the use of “harm reduction” to prevent eviction
  • local resources to help reduce clutter, improve safety and prevent eviction
