Girl in Red
We at Biohaven are so honoured to support the making of the film “Waving”. There is an extreme need for education around Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, accurately portraying the symptoms and how severe and debilitating it can be. This film depicts the intensity and torment that affects those with OCD and their loved ones, in a way that leaves you speechless. Waving is a giant creative step in bringing attention to the necessary importance for earlier and accurate diagnoses, and better more effective treatments. Psychiatric illnesses need to be better understood to help destigmatize those in need and the world around them. At Biohaven we continue this fight, working diligently to find new treatments for OCD as well as other neurological and psychiatric illnesses. We hope this film touches you as deeply as it has touched us.
