14th September 2022
We are greatly saddened by the death of Her Majesty The Queen and offer our condolences to all those who loved the Queen and are grieving at this time.
We understand that this period of mourning will feel different for every member of our community. However, we want to remind you that if you want or need support at this time, our services are here for you.
Monday the 19th of September 2022 will be a national Bank Holiday in the UK for the State Funeral of Her Majesty The Queen. At OCD Action, we want to enable all our staff and volunteers to mark this occasion if they wish, and so we will be closing our helpline and support groups for this bank holiday.
If you call our helpline and leave a message, or email us, we will get back to you, although this may take slightly longer than usual.
Support groups will not be running on the 19th of September. Groups will run as normal from the 20th of September onwards.
Our forum is available to use 24 hours a day if you would like to connect with the wider OCD Community.
Please always remember if you need immediate support, you can call the Samaritans on 116 123. If you are in crisis and need emergency care you can always call 999.
We wish everyone the very best at this sad time.
