Our mission is to help all individuals with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders to live full and productive lives.
We work to increase access to effective treatment, end the stigma associated with mental health issues, and foster a community for those affected by OCD and the professionals who treat them.
Ethan’s journey has not been an easy one, but it is a story that should give hope to the thousands of individuals affected by severe OCD, or watching their family members or loved ones struggling.

As part of our mission to raise awareness about OCD and related disorders, increase access to effective treatment, help end stigma, and foster a community, the IOCDF runs programs throughout the year, for individuals, families, and professionals, alike.
