be Well: Howie Mandel talks about his OCD diagnosis and what led him to seek help
Howie Mandel has been entertaining audiences for decades.
He built his career on standup stages, making people laugh. But behind all of the jokes – there was a struggle.
Mandel was suffering with depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder. People with OCD have uncontrollable thoughts or behaviors. They feel they need to repeat over and over.
And that can interfere with their schoolwork, jobs and relationships.
The TV star sought help, and has been working with NOCD – the world’s leading provider of obsessive compulsive disorder treatment.
He visited the be Well team with Stephen Smith, co-founder and CEO of NOCD.
