We can't believe that the 27th Annual OCD Conference is less than a month away! Join us in Denver on July 8-10 for a three day weekend packed with community building, fun after-hours activities, and informative presentations on OCD and related disorders— bringing together individuals and families living with OCD, mental health professionals, and researchers in the community. Below we have listed some "can't miss" highlights of the event weekend that are sure to make for a positively memorable conference experience. View the full Denver Conference program and schedule.
OCD Art Gallery
Back by popular demand, this year's OCD Art Gallery will feature all kinds of artwork submitted by members of the OCD community. From prints and paintings, to mixed media and illustrations, each art piece tells a unique story of those who crafted them, reaching into the minds and hearts of all who view this gallery. Stop by the Exhibit Hall to immerse yourself into the creativity of our community and to add your mark to this interactive art piece!
Keynote Address & Awards Ceremony
One of our favorite events of the Annual OCD Conference is the Saturday evening keynote address and the IOCDF awards presentation. These selected individuals have gone above and beyond in their efforts to raise awareness and advocate for OCD and related disorders. This year's awards will be given to our winners of the Service Award, Career Achievement Award, Hero Award, and Youth Hero Award for their outstanding achievements.
For the keynote address, Toby, Simon, Mali, and Oliver of the Kinberg family will be joining us to share their family's story with OCD and mental health, and the unique experience that being part of a high-profile family can have a family’s healing.

Researcher/Exhibitor Meet & Greet
The Research and Exhibitor Meet & Greet is held on the evening of Saturday, July 9th right after the Keynote and Awards Ceremony in the Exhibit Hall (5:45pm - 7pm). This meet and greet will be a chance for attendees to network with Conference exhibitors and ask researchers questions about their research symposium posters. All before the much anticipated Official OCD Conference party.
