Group Information:

The Central London OCD Support Group is open to people who have (or think they might have) OCD or a related disorder, their family members, their carers and their friends. It is an informal but structured meeting where people affected can talk to others in a friendly, non-judgmental way. The group does not offer therapy or professional guidance, but is an opportunity to share thoughts, ideas and strategies, and to provide mutual support.

If you or anyone accompanying you is under 18 please contact the group first.

The 52 Club is in the basement of Bonham Carter House. Please enter through the small archway in the railings just before the bus stop and go down the steps - there is no need to enter Bonham Carter House. An external lift is available by the bus stop.
The group will normally be in the large room to the left as you enter the Club, but may occasionally be in the smaller room on the right - just look for a sign showing 'Support Group'. 

Please Note: While the room in The 52 Club we will be using has a bar it will be closed and alcohol will not be available / visible


Due to the need to pay for room hire a small cash contribution is requested at each meeting - this will normally be between £2.00 and £2.50 per person per meeting, but if anyone is unable to pay this will not prevent them attending. There is no other charge for the group.

Dates for 2017:

All meetings are 7pm-9.30pm.

The meetings normally start promptly at 7pm, and sometimes finish a little after 9.30pm, but it is OK to arrive a little late or to leave early.
