Jasmine Harman shares her My Hoarding Awareness Week story
Jasmine, has a very personal connection to Hoarding Disorder. Her mother has the condition so she has a real insight into the impact it has on those who suffer and those closest to them.
Throughout the journey she has been on with her mother, she founded Hoarding.Support, an organisation that offers support to individuals with Hoarding Disorder but also advice for those closest to them.
National Hoarding Awareness Week is there to bring awareness to all sides of the condition, including that of the loved ones who are looking for information on how they can best support their friend or relative.
Hoarding Disorder is more than simply being unable to keep your space tidy, it is a complex condition that can have a lifelong impact on everybody involved.
These real stories by real people are so important to helping us raise awareness, showing how normal and common the condition is and that it’s never something to be ashamed of.
