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:

Increasing access to effective treatment through:
Promoting awareness about OCD and related disorders to the OCD community and the general public.
OCD Sacramento announces our upcoming 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk and partnership with OCD SF Bay Area, another IOCDF affiliate! This year we are thrilled to join our efforts and expand our reach to include a wider region in hope of not only promoting the Walk, but also our mission to raise awareness into the importance of reducing stigma associated with OCD. With the support of the IOCDF, we hope to make this Walk our most one successful ever.
