Description:

The OCD Sacramento Foundation, Inc. was established in 2010 and is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources and raising awareness, either for those affected by, or interested in learning more about obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders in the Greater Sacramento and Northern California regions.

OCD Sacramento is an affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF), which is the largest international organization committed to raising public awareness about Obsessive-Compulsive spectrum disorders. Founded in 1986 by a small group of individuals with OCD, the IOCDF has grown into an international membership-based organization serving a broad community of individuals with OCD and related disorders, their family members and loved ones, and mental health professionals and researchers. The IOCDF has affiliates in 22 states and territories in the US, in addition to partnerships with other OCD organizations around the world. The IOCDF aims to improve outcomes for individuals with OCD and related disorders by:

Providing resources and support for those affected by OCD, including individuals with OCD and related disorders, their family members, friends, and loved ones.
Increasing access to effective treatment through:

  • Educating mental health professionals about evidence-based treatments.
  • Providing a forum for professional collaboration and networking.
  • Supporting research into the causes of and treatments for OCD and related disorders.
  • Promoting awareness about OCD and related disorders to the OCD community and the general public.

    Updates:

    OCD Sacramento kicked off their monthly presentation line-up in February 2018 with a discussion given by Robin Zasio, PsyD entitled OCD: All You Need to Know About Treatment and How to Access Resources. Our March presentation by Jill Kruse discussed Relapse Prevention: Continuing Success After Treatment and in April, Dr. Tracy Roulet will present on Family Accommodation in OCD: What is Helpful and Not So Helpful.

    OCD Sacramento is also looking forward to hosting our 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk on June 9, 2018 and returning to Southside Park, our original Walk venue from 2013. As many of you know, for the past few years we combined our walk with OCD Bay Area to create a NorCal Walk. However, we have decided that we will each host our own walks moving forward to reach more of the community in our geographical locations. This incredible Walk movement has touched so many lives and we look forward to seeing you again this year in our efforts to raise awareness into proper treatment for OCD and work to reduce stigma.
