“Meaningful connections are crucial to our wellbeing, but what is life like without friends? As someone with obsessive-compulsive disorder, I will discuss the struggles of forming and maintaining friendships, and how I’m working to be brave.”
In this TEDx talk, Courtney Ryman talks about her experiences with loneliness, and an underlying struggle with mental illness. She works actively to destigmatize mental illness and speaks about the value of human connection. Strength can be found even in times of weakness and Ryman hopes to inspire people to find the bravery to reach out for help.
