OCD Georgia, Inc., the Georgia affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF), was founded in 2011 to increase awareness of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and its treatment, provide information to Georgians with OCD and related disorders and their families and friends, and offer OCD educational and outreach programs to mental health professionals and the Georgia community. Through providing resources at the local level, the goal of OCD Georgia is to help reduce the time it takes people suffering from OCD to find the right treatment.
OCD Georgia has had an exciting 2016 so far — and we’re only a few months in! We’ve expanded our social media presence with the launch of our YouTube channel. If you missed our OCD Awareness Week event or simply want to re-watch it, you can find the speakers’ presentations on our YouTube page. In addition, find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and on our website! Want to do more than just engage on social media, perhaps even play a more active role within OCD Georgia? We are expanding our volunteer network and are looking for people in the OCD Georgia community to join us. Interested? Let us know by emailing Info@OCDGeorgia.org. Lastly, we can’t wait until June 4 for the second annual 1 Million Steps for OCD Walk in Atlanta at Chastain Park. Last year was phenomenal, and we are even more excited to see what this year holds. Put the date on your calendar — this is something you won’t want to miss!
