Your chance to comment - NICE Guidance update proposal

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?

An exciting opportunity to join our Board of Trustees

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.

October Awareness Campaigns!

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 Week of Action is back: 19th-25th February 2018

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, will be running this year from 19th-25th February, and we want you all to get involved!


OCD Week of Action (OCDwoa) is a campaigning week where we are encouraging everyone to take action against OCD. 

Support people with OCD by joining our Helpline team!

The OCD Action Helpline provides support and information to people who have/think they may have OCD or a related disorder, and their friends and family. The Helpline is operated by a fantastic team of volunteers who give up their spare time to support other people, often because they have first hand experience of OCD and know how tough it is to battle.
