Quaker Meeting House
7pm - 8.45pm
First Monday of Each Month
Who can attend:
Meetings are on the first Monday of each month (If this falls on a bank holiday Monday the meeting will take place on the 2nd Monday of the month).
OCD SUPPORT is open to people who live with OCD and also carers, family members and friends of those living with OCD, living in Hull and the surrounding area. We have an age restriction of 16 years; however those under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult.
Meetings focus on sharing experiences and coping strategies between the members. We have a holistic approach to Mental Health and invite various guest speakers every other month for one hour to dicuss a particualr topic that relates to anxiety and OCD.
OCD SUPPORT is a local, self-sufficient, non-profit charity based in Hull. We help (and are entirely managed by) people who are affected directly or indirectly (family and friends) by Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The founder of OCD SUPPORT set up the self-help support group for local residents because there were no other support groups available. OCD SUPPORT has grown from strength to strength since opening its doors in 2011 with over 60 members and still recruiting (although the average monthly meeting sees around 25 members). We have a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere and ensure all information discussed within the meeting is kept confidential. Because we are a self sufficient charity we engage in local promotional and fund raising events too to help with the maintenance and running of the support group. If you wish to support our good cause you can by visiting http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ and enter OCD SUPPORT (Hull). By just browsing the web for free or purchasing online you can make a real difference at no extra cost to yourself.
Although we do not arrange social activities outside of the group members do get together outside of the group if they wish.
We have an open door policy, where members can come on a regular basis or just those that suit them.
Disabled access available and hot and coldrefreshments provided (There is a donations pot if members would like to contribute)
