Gaze Into the Future « Blog

For the past 30 years, the International OCD Foundation’s mission has remained the same: to help ALL individuals affected by OCD and related disorders to live full and productive lives.  Our name may have changed over the years, but our tireless commitment to the goals set by our Founders 30 years ago has not. Those founders set out to create an organization that would not only support OCD research, as well as education and training for mental health professionals, but would also offer invaluable support to families in crisis.

“The IOCDF was there 15 years ago for my family to help and educate during a critical and difficult time.  My gratitude has motivated me to give to the IOCDF to help assure that others may also get the support they need through the IOCDF.”
–Tom Bugler

While we celebrated the impact that the IOCDF’s work has made over the last 30 years this fall, we also know that there is much more work still to be done. When we look into the future, we hope to see a world of increased and understanding about OCD and related disorders.  A world in which a person is easily able to recognize the signs and symptoms of OCD or a related disorder. A world where individuals and families are not burdened by stigma. A world where those who are suffering have access to effective and affordable treatment.

This future is not yet a reality, but with your help it is within our grasp. Consider all that we have accomplished in the last 30 years together and now, imagine what we can do in the future to help individuals and families affected by OCD.
