Barry Thomet is known for his advocacy and dedication to individuals with mental health and addiction disorders, through his more than 20 years of service at Rogers Memorial Hospital in Oconomowoc, WI. He has served as marketing liaison for the International OCD Foundation and serves as a founding member of the board of directors for OCD Wisconsin.

“A little known aspect of Barry’s work is that he is a great steward of treatment in general, not just Rogers,” says Paul Mueller, chief executive officer of Rogers Memorial Hospital. “His lightheartedness is complemented by the gentle demeanor he has with those who reach out to him. He knows the difficulty and challenges that individuals with OCD and other mental illnesses face, which makes him one of the best resources for guidance and understanding.”
