Use Hashtags

Hashtags have become a powerful symbol of unity and organization on social media. By utilizing #OCDCON, #ocdawareness and other hashtags in our posts, we create a virtual gathering place for individuals with a common cause: advocating for OCD awareness. The hashtag acts as a catalyst, bringing together a global community of individuals who are passionate about mental health and fighting the stigma surrounding OCD. 

Tag Us

The International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) has been at the forefront of providing support, education, and resources for individuals with OCD and related disorders. By tagging IOCDF in our social media posts, we ensure that our messages reach a wider audience and the people who are working tirelessly to support those affected by OCD. IOCDF can also share our posts and engage with the community, fostering a sense of connection and empowerment.

Make it Visually Appealing

In the realm of social media, eye-catching visuals have the power to captivate and inspire. As we share content related to OCD, let's make it visually appealing. Utilize powerful images, snazzy stories, inspiring quotes, and videos that convey the message effectively. Visual content has a higher chance of capturing attention and encouraging further engagement, helping to amplify the reach of our advocacy efforts.

Make a Personal Appeal

You are the star of your social media!  Share your story!  Be authentic! 

Personal narratives hold immense power to inspire and foster empathy. If you or someone you know has experienced OCD, consider sharing personal stories that highlight the challenges, triumphs, and the journey towards recovery. These stories humanize the experience, break down barriers, and let others know they are not alone. Remember to be sensitive and respectful when sharing personal experiences, ensuring the privacy and consent of those involved.

Social media bubles float above phones. Engage Your Followers

Engaging your followers is essential for building a strong and active online community. It's not just about amassing likes and followers but creating meaningful connections and fostering a sense of belonging. To engage your followers effectively, focus on creating content that resonates with them. Craft visually appealing and compelling posts that capture their attention and make them want to stop scrolling. Encourage their participation by asking thought-provoking questions, inviting them to share their experiences or opinions.  Help us build our profile!  Encourage your followers to be liking, commenting and sharing our content as well to help increase visibility and reach a wider audience!
