Established in 1986 by a group of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder sufferers in North America who came together through the first treatment trials for OCD.

At this time in their lives not one of them had ever met another person with OCD! They decided to create a group to provide support, resources, promote awareness and provide a forum for education in evidence – based treatments. Lots of information on obsessions and compulsions over and above the usual “washing and cleaning” trope, including Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts and related disorders such as Hoarding, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours, Olfactory Reference Syndrome.
