Margaret Sisson

Margaret Sisson is currently serving as President of OCD Georgia. In addition to her work here, she is also an educator and advocate. Margaret started a Montessori School in 1991 and continues to teach and administrate. She became involved with the IOCDF as a result of her son's struggles with OCD. Tragically, her son, Riley, lost his battle to a dual diagnosis of OCD and addiction by an accidental overdose in September 2014.  Until his death, Riley was an advocate for those suffering from OCD and addiction, presenting a panel on the treatment of OCD and Addiction at the 2014 IOCDF conference in Los Angeles. Margaret is devoted to continuing Riley's work and has started Riley's Wish Foundation in his honor. Its mission is to encourage purposeful actions to serve those battling various types of mental illness, particularly OCD and Addiction. The foundation intends to foster unity among persons suffering and seeks to educate the public about various disorders in addition to affecting change in awareness and treatment.
