OCD Midwest’s mission is to bring information about OCD to the Midwest states of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, though we of course welcome all other states in the Midwest to utilize our information as well. We hope to be able to be a source of the most up-to-date information about OCD, OCD research, and fund raising opportunities for the OCD community.


OCD Midwest looks forward to an event in late February at the Hubbard Dance Studio. It will be an afternoon of Yoga, Mindfulness, Dance/Movement Therapy and stories of OCD. All who want to attend and see how there are many ways to help you deal with your OCD – Please do so. Details are still being worked out, so please contact Dr. Patrick B. McGrath at Patrick.mcgrath@alexian.net for up to date info.

Additionally, OCD Midwest is looking to plan another mini conference/day of training in the Midwest this year and is looking for a city to host our event. Do you have a practice in an area where there are not a lot of resources for OCD sufferers? If so, contact Dr. Patrick B. McGrath (Patrick.mcgrath@alexian.net) or Dr. Charles Brady (Charles.Brady@lindnercenterofhope.org) and make your pitch for us to come to your town to work with you on putting on a day of training for therapists and an open forum for people with OCD and their families. We look forward to working with you on this in the fall — contact us now so we can start planning!
