Who we are
Founded in 2010, the OCD Mid-Atlantic is a non-profit affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). We are a locally based group made up of people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related disorders, as well as their families, friends, professionals and others. The affiliate services Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern and Central Virginia.
The mission and goals of OCD Mid-Atlantic are to:
- Educate the public and professionals about OCD in order to raise awareness and improve the quality of treatment provided in the Mid-Atlantic region
- Improve access to resources for those with OCD and their families in the Mid-Atlantic region
- Advocate and lobby for the OCD community in the Mid-Atlantic region.
OCD Mid-Atlantic is gearing up for a busy year! On March 23rd, the Mid-Atlantic Affiliate will be hosting Understanding OCD – A free event for anyone interested in learning about OCD and its treatment at the Anne Arundel Community College near Annapolis, MD. In June, there will be an evening event in Northern Virginia that focuses on overcoming OCD-related challenges, advocacy in treating OCD, and how families come together to beat OCD.
