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.
Our OCD Awareness Week was a huge success! Our event took place at Skyland Trail, a residential treatment center in Atlanta. Nathaniel Van Kirk, Coordinator of Inpatient Group Therapy and Research Associate at the OCD Institute, was our keynote speaker. He told his story of his journey, success and living with OCD. Our OCD GA board and volunteers staged several “real life” environments and showed how ERP works! OCD Georgia is gearing up for our 4th Annual 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk on June 2, 2018, which will once again be at Chastain Park in Atlanta. Stayed tuned for more information!
