Everyone has picked something. But Dermatillomania sufferers pick everything. Dermatillomania aka skin picking disorder affects 1 out of 20 people but is hidden by embarrassment, shame, and isolation. After skin picking for over two decades and almost losing her leg to the mental illness related to OCD, she set out to create the home, the foundation she was looking for. Picking Me Foundation is the only nonprofit of its kind worldwide and helps tens of thousands of sufferers, their supporters, and education providers choose themselves over the disorder that chose them, by #PickingMe over skin picking.
Picking Me is dedicated to providing awareness, support, community and resources to the misunderstood and underserved dermatillomania community. We run online support groups, art therapy programs, make Fiddle Packs full of fidgets to keep fingers busy and off the body and sell them in our shop. We help sufferers know they’re not alone, while helping educators have the resources to work with them. We offer skin picking tracking logs, Derma Resource Packets, and following our social media account always leads to advocacy: @pickingmefdn.
But dermatillomania disables individuals. And we need you in order to continue.
Please, help heal our future?
