OCD TEXAS is a nonprofit support and advocacy organization for people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related disorders. We are dedicated to bringing together OCD sufferers, their families and friends, researchers and treating professionals across Texas, in order to:
Educate the public and professionals about OCD and related disorders in order to raise awareness and improve the quality of treatment provided;
Improve access to resources for those with OCD and their families so that individuals afflicted with OCD and related disorders can better identify, seek, and gain access to appropriate support and affordable treatment;
Support research toward better understanding of and more effective treatments for OCD and related disorders;
Advocate and lobby for the OCD community.
We are thrilled to sponsor August’s General Behavior Therapy Training Institute (BTTI) Welcome Reception in Austin, and to provide 4 scholarships to Texas providers to attend this training. If you are interested in being considered for this scholarship, please visit www.ocdtexas.org for more information. IOCDF developed the BTTI to address the shortage of therapists properly trained in using CBT to treat OCD. A guiding principle of OCD Texas’ mission is to educate professionals about OCD and related disorders in order to improve the quality of treatment provided, as well as to improve access to appropriate resources.
OCD Texas will host our annual OCD Awareness Conference on Saturday, October 10th to be held in San Antonio, TX. We are excited to offer stellar education and support programming for the community by leading professionals in the field. Stay tuned to our website for more details. We are aimed for growth and development in the new year.
