Hallee was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), a chronic, long-lasting mental disorder in which a person has uncontrollable reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsion). She tried an intensive outpatient program, which seemed to work until her symptoms become much worse. Despite trying SSRIs, SNRIs, antipsychotic medications, ketamine, and some other inpatient treatments in 2012 and 2015, Hallee's OCD is worse than ever and only getting more severe. She was feeling utterly hopeless when she learned about the Houston OCD Program, an inpatient treatment program in Houston, TX -- one of only a few programs in the country that can help people like Hallee. Unfortunately the program is not covered by insurance so Hallee and her family are needing to pay out of pocket.
We are hoping that this fundraiser could help to raise money for her to go for treatment ASAP. Here is a link to Hallee’s GoFundMe where all donations are being requested.
