Group Information:

Our group is for anyone over the age of 18 who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

We aim to support people with OCD. We have been in existence for about 12 years. Everyone who comes to the group has OCD. We are a small group, with a range of ages. At our meetings, we take turns to talk about our week, and new members can join in if they wish, or just listen and get to know people. We have a small library about OCD, and lend books to group members. We have had funding at various times to buy books and to go to the OCD Action Conference. Most members are from Tyne and Wear and Northumberland, but because of the great need for support for people with OCD, those from elsewhere in the North East are also welcome as members.There is no fee for meetings. We make our own tea and coffee for 30p a cup. There is parking nearby. We go out on occasional social events. We welcome new members with OCD – come and meet us!

Directions to the Venue:

We are not far from Byker metro and buses that go along Shields Road. There is a lift to the room. Molineux Street is no longer a through street, but if you are driving, you turn into Heaton Park Road from Shields Road and then take the first right – you will immediately see the Walk-In Centre diagonally on the right, and if you go straight on you will find parking. 

Cost:

No charge (30p for refreshments).
