Get involved

OCD Week of Action - 16th-20th February

OCD Week of Action is all about fighting back. Everyone can get involved, whether it's taking the first steps to getting help for your OCD, or campaigning for better services, there are actions that you can take!

On Monday the 16th February we will be launching our take action website where you can go to create your own action plan to help you fight against OCD! We want as many people as possible to get involved and create an action plan, so please spread the word and let people know about Week of Action!

#Timetotalk day

Today is Time to Talk day. This campaign, led by Time to Change, is all about fighting stigma surrounding mental health! 

1 in 4 people are affected by mental health issues so no one should feel alone or ashamed. Why don't you take 5 minutes out of your day to have a conversation about mental health with a friend, family member or even a stranger? You can then head over the the Time to Change website to log your 5 minutes

Helpline Volunteer Role Description

Fundraising collections at ASDA Southgate – can you help?

There are many ways people can get involved in raising money for OCD Action to support our work with children and adults across the UK.  If you’ve got a few hours to spare, one way is to hold a fundraising collection outside your local supermarket.  This can raise a lot of money in a short space of time.  Plus, it helps to raise awareness of OCD Action and the support we can offer people affected by OCD.
