Four Reasons Why You Should Come to Cleanaholics Anonymous’s ‘Dirty Laundry’ Event

Peer Support

You’re not alone!

We will be discussing our own personal experiences with compulsive cleaning and how it has affected our lives.

We pride ourselves on fostering a safe environment for students (and the general public) to feel comfortable and empowered to share their stories.

Some may not be currently struggling with or formally diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder while some others may just simply want to learn more about compulsive cleaning in general.

Whatever your reason for coming, you will be glad you did!

Dr. Brené Brown

Our keynote speaker and facilitator, Dr. Brené Brown, will be flying in from Houston.

As the Huffington Endowed Chair at the University of Houston’s College of Social Work, she has conducted research on courage, vulnerability, empathy, and shame.

Dr. Brown is simultaneously a New York Times best-selling author. Her four books include: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, and Braving the Wilderness.

Simply calling her novels ‘self-help’ books would be an understatement.

These books are consistent with our event’s themes of honesty and empowerment.

In her work, Dr. Brown elaborates on how to navigate the many stressors of life while maintaining a positive outlook.

Furthermore, she flawlessly debunks misconceptions about self-care.

This will be her first appearance as a guest speaker on a college campus so be sure to come out and show her some love!

Food, Food, Food. Oh, did I mention food?

We have been in coordination with the Varsity Place Chipotle Mexican Grill on Tennessee street, and they have agreed to sponsor this event.

This translates to FREE burritos, burrito bowls, and beverages for all of our lovely attendees!

Need I say any more? Not all at once now!

We only ask that you RSVP on our Facebook page (Cleanaholics Anonymous at FSU) in order for us to gauge how many people are interested in joining us for this grand undertaking. Chipotle and we would greatly appreciate it!


As aforementioned, we’re all in this together!

Feel free to use this opportunity to network with your fellow students and Tallahassee community.

You may be surprised at how therapeutic self-disclosing can be!

Chronic conditions like OCD can be debilitating and isolating, and that’s where we come in! Never feel that you have to suffer alone.

We also provide referrals to mental health services on campus and within the Tallahassee community such as the University Counseling Center on the second floor of the Askew Student Life Center and the Apalachee Center!

We look forward to seeing you all there! Be well.
