Did you know #PickingMe is founded and led by a fellow Skin Picker?
CEO Lauren McKeaney has lived with #Dermatillomania for over 27 years and knows firsthand the struggles of living with this disorder. She most recently received double-hand surgery in 2019 from severe carpal tunnel, a side effect after years of picking. Lauren understands what you're going through and that's why she's dedicated to helping you receive the recognition you deserve, especially during this stressful quarantine. We're more than a nonprofit, we are a community.
Learn more about Lauren's journey and how she went from a silent sufferer to adamant advocate here.
Due to these unforseen circumstances, our Chicago Support Group is paused and we are now holding Online Skin Picking Support Group! Our group is held every 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month, from 6:00PM to 7:30PM (CST). This is an adult group (18+) and is held by #PickingMe CEO and Skin Picker Lauren McKeaney.
