By becoming a member of OCD Action, you will become part of our growing community, influencing the running of our charity, the action we can take and the difference we can make. You will be a key driver towards positive change for people with OCD, their families and wider society. In return, you will also reap benefits all year around, with a bi-annual OCD Action newsletter, discounted tickets for OCD Action’s events, such as the OCD Action conference, and an invitation to OCD Action’s annual AGM- offering an opportunity to vote on important charity decisions.
We love kicking off the new year with exciting events and campaigns, and this year is no different to last! Our annual campaigning week OCD Week of Action has begun and will continue to run until Sunday 24th February!
OCD Week of Action (#OCDwoa) is a week long campaign where we ask you to commit to doing one thing which will make a positive difference to those affected by OCD.
Community Fundraising is such an integral part of OCD Action! Each year, we are overwhelmed by the amount of incredible volunteers who give up their time to raise vital funds which help us carry out our work.
Registered stakeholders and individuals have been invited to comment on whether the NICE clinical guideline on OCD and BDD treatment should be updated.
This is a really important opportunity for you to have your say on the guidelines for treatment for OCD and BDD, including: whether the stepped care pathway currently recommended in the guidance needs reconsideration, whether SSRIs are increasingly being used as first-line treatment for young people with OCD and whether paedophilic and violent intrusive thoughts should result in the raising of safeguarding concerns?
As the end of the year approaches, it's an important time to reflect on the Charity as a whole and think about what we can do in order to meet the ever increasing demand for OCD Action's services and resources. One way in which we think we can strengthen the Charity further is to grow and enhance our Board of Trustees and welcome new members to the team who can bring fresh ideas to the table and who can support our current dedicated volunteers who sit on the Board.
We have some exciting news - We are recruiting!
We are looking for an Office Administrator, a Volunteer Coordinator and a Helpline Assistant to join our small and hard-working staff team. All roles will be based in OCD Action's London office.

Is it that time of year already? It only seems like a few weeks since we were in the middle of our OCD Week of Action (which takes place during February every year), when in fact it was a whopping 6 months ago and we are already approaching the next big OCD campaign!
October marks two very special occasions, OCD Awareness Week and World Mental Health Day, and they are both fantastic opportunities to help spread the word about OCD and other mental health conditions, fight stigma, change perceptions, and (most importantly) support others!
OCD Action's Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at Friends House, 173 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ in the evening of Wednesday 2 May. The AGM is for OCD Action Members only, and invitations are being sent to all Members in the coming week. The AGM is a unique opportunity for Members to vote on important Charity decisions.
