Kathryn Joosten helps bring OCD into the Hollywood spotlight by shooting a PSA to raise awareness and support Kellie Madisos latest film Machine Man.

Two-time Emmy winner Kathryn Joosten helps bring this hush-hush disorder into the Hollywood spotlight by shooting a PSA to raise awareness for the cause and to support Kellie Madison's latest film, "Machine Man."

The film is the first narrative to address the debilitating struggle that millions of people affected by OCD go through on a daily basis.

Joosten said;

"Before I started acting, I was a psychiatric nurse and witnessed the staggering effect mental illness can have. I think it's important this film gets made, I'm just doing my part to help make that happen."

Madison created The Machine Man Project in efforts to change perceptions of OCD through media and art.

The film is the cornerstone of this bold effort.

Madison is also attempting to do something never done before: raise $2,000,000 for the production of the "Machine Man" movie through a grassroots social media campaign.

Her team shot a trailer for the film (with the help of three of Spielberg's top crew members) which was recently unveiled at the 18th Annual International OCD Conference and was a huge success!
