“ACT OUT of the Clutter Closet!"
-- This Event has been Rescheduled --

· ACT OUT! ·
COMING OUT OF THE CLUTTER CLOSET
Shine Light on Mental Health & Recovery.
Sweep “Collecting Behavior” Out From Under the Rug.

The Diagnosis Called “Hoarding Disorder” Comes Out of the Clutter Closet.

Widespread and common, but closeted and hidden, "Hoarding Disorder" only became an official American Psychiatric Association diagnosis less than ten years ago. Let's uncover this behavioral health challenge!

Alternative terms like "HD" or "Collecting Behavior" stop stigma and shame. Behavioral Health comes out from being hidden under the rug to shine light on recovery and resilience, because: Everybody has Mental Health, and everybody needs good Mental Health!

Briefly performing a short scene or two from her original solo comedy,
"DisordR, The Play," DC Actor, Educator, and Advocate Hilary Kacser invites you to tell your own story and get up on your feet to act it out, all while opening conversation about this little understood, but potentially serious, and very under resourced issue, “Collecting Behavior.”

Join:
“ACT OUT of the Clutter Closet"
A little song, a little dance, a little audience participation, a little clutter
 
—performance of one (or two, if time allows) very short excerpted scenes from "DisordR, The Play"

—an introductory taster about collecting behavior (“HD” or the diagnosis identified as hoarding disorder) -- and what we can do to try to get help
 
—a short interactive, creative section helping audience participants get up on their feet briefly performing
 
—Audience Question & Answer Discussion
