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.

Work for us - Lead Advocate (Maternity cover)

Following some very exciting news, our Lead Advocate, Kenna, will be taking some time away from OCD Action. Whilst away on maternity leave, we are currently looking to recruit a new Lead Advocate to fill Kenna's shoes.

OCD Action's Advocacy service is the only one of its kind in the UK. Working with people who have OCD to secure their rights to access quality treatment and to be treated fairly at home, in education and at work. The service has recently secured 5 years funding from the Big Lottery Fund.
