OCD Week of Action 2017: 20th-26th February

Putting off booking that doctors appointment? Frustrated by lack of services in your local area? Then now is the time to do something about it! OCD Week of Action is back, and it's going to be bigger than ever!


What is Week of Action?

OCD Week of Action is a campaigning week, where we invite people to take action against OCD. The week is an opportunity for everyone to fight collectively to beat OCD and change people's perceptions of mental health and the stigma that surrounds it.

Market Research Agency looking for participants with OCD/BDD

Could you help? OCD Action have been contacted by a market research agency, who are carrying out a study on people affected by OCD or BDD, looking at Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and how it helps them to manage their condition. Three participants are still required for this research. Participants should ideally be self-diagnosed, who are using/have used CBT apps (ie. Joyable, Lantern, Koko, Pacifica, Moodnotes, Noom, Happify, etc.) and who live in the London area.

OCD Awareness Week 2016

It's that time of year again, when we all join together to fight stigma and raise awareness of OCD. Although raising awareness is something we focus on all year round through our services, OCD Awareness Week is a great opportunity to further highlight the true nature of OCD, and help erase some of the stereotypes and misconceptions often associated with the disorder.

Perfect - a brand new performance about OCD

At OCD Action, we are always thrilled to hear about any creative performances taking place, whether it be a fundraiser, or a way to raise awareness of OCD. So we were especially excited to hear that one of the Better Together Regional Volunteers and Support Group facilitator, Jeremy Allen, has written a brand new play which aims to dispel myths about OCD.

'Perfect', will be performed by Oxford’s Saturday Matinee Company (SatMatCo) at the Old Fire Station in Oxford, this June.
