International OCD Foundation
A retired educator, Denis Asselin is committed to spreading awareness about BDD/OCD. His son, Nathaniel, struggled 13 years with BDD and took his own life at age 24. In his memory, Denis walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain and then created his own homemade pilgrimage back in the states, a 525-mike trek from PA to Boston, stopping at hospitals and clinics, and engaging with people he met on the path. He is on the IOCDF Board of Directors and works with the BDD Special Interest Group (SIG).
