Micah Howe

Micah graduated from high school in 2008 at the top of his class with nothing but a promising future. However, when his OCD and co-morbid hoarding disorder became symptomatic shortly thereafter, he soon found himself unable to complete college or retain steady employment. After many years of disillusionment, Micah began to slowly gain traction in his life after several months of ERP therapy in a partial-hospitalization setting. Now, he is passionate about advocating for those afflicted with mental health issues and is in the process of starting his own business and helping the IOCDF launch an affiliate chapter in Iowa.
