Ozias

Co-Author
Occupational Therapist
Mental Health Advocate

Hey all! I’m Ozias a mental health OT from London, England (graduated in 2015). I’m also a mental health service user. 
I’m a massive Harry Potter fan (I’m in Slytherin if you’re wondering 😂), and a bibliophile, both of which have been crucial in my recovery journey. 
In October 2018, I went back to uni to study Child & Adolescent Mental Health (Advanced Practitioner) MSc, so I’m often found lurking in coffee shops surrounded by journal articles 🤓 
I’m really excited to be joining the OT for BPD page, and I hope that I can use my experiences to benefit some of you, and that we can advocate OT for BPD together

Co-Author
Occupational Therapist

Hello everyone! My name is Anya, I recently completed my Bachelor of Occupational Therapy degree, and I am extremely excited about being a part of this community, and I very much look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you all and working together to advocate for the importance of occupational therapy for BPD!”  
On a more personal note, some things about me are that I love animals (especially my two beautiful pets Adam and Nikita), I love music and going to concerts, and I have recently developed a strong passion for exercise as a way to manage my own mental health.
