Sadie's story“I have really, really learned a lot about myself and how resilient I am. I don’t need to be the best; I just need to do what I love to the best of my ability.” – Sadie

Sadie has been dealing with issues of anxiety and OCD since she was very young. Concerned that she was heading for significant trouble, Sadie’s parents sought the help of the McLean Anxiety Mastery Program (MAMP), a four-week program that includes exposure therapy. Sadie embraced the treatment and acquired the tools she needs to manage her anxiety.

The McLean Anxiety Mastery Program is supported, in part, by philanthropy. To make a gift to MAMP, visit our giving page and select ‘Other’ and identify MAMP as the recipient of your support.
