Reply To: Strategies to fight against OCD
We just want you to know that you can also contact the OCD Action Helpline to talk to or email someone who understands OCD.
Our Helpline volunteers provide confidential and unbiased help, information and support for people with OCD (and their family members too). Most volunteers have personal experience of OCD; all understand OCD and how it can impact your entire life. Contact our Helpline by:
- phone: 0300 636 5478 (this is a UK number).
- email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also find out about support group for people with OCD – some also include family members too – on our website. These offer a safe place where you can talk openly about OCD and support other people too. Our information about UK-based groups can be found here:
- Local independent support groups: https://ocdaction.org.uk/i-need-support/local-support/
- OCD Action Skype/Phone/Zoom support groups: https://ocdaction.org.uk/i-need-support/ocd-action-skype-phone-zoom-support-groups/
If you don’t live in the UK, you can look for groups near you on the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) website. Look in the section “Find Help” and then under “Listing Types”, choose “Support Groups”: https://iocdf.org/
And please remember that you’re never alone – OCD Action is always here to help and support you.
