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.

    Updates:

    OCD Sacramento is kicking off 2017 with our monthly presentation line up, hosted by therapists, those struggling with OCD and related conditions, and family members, all donating their time to help better inform the public about proper treatment and resources. Topics will include psychoeducation on OCD, its treatment, medication considerations, and presentations will include panels of experts who have struggled personally and will share their journey.

    Save the date! The 4th Annual Northern California 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk will be held at the Sacramento Capitol on June 10, 2017 (new date!). This year’s Walk will be led by our grand marshal, Clint Malarchuk, a retired Canadian NHL goalie, who will share how OCD impacted his career and relationships and how his journey has transformed his life. An awareness building and fundraising Walk, jointly hosted by the IOCDF, OCD Sacramento, and fellow NorCal IOCDF Affiliate, OCD SF Bay Area, our goal is to promote an understanding of OCD and related conditions, fight stigma, and provide a community for the many individuals and families affected by OCD.
