Founded in 1995, OCD Massachusetts is a non-profit affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). OCD Massachusetts is a locally based group made up of people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related disorders, as well as their families, friends, professionals and others.
The mission and goals of OCD Massachusetts are to:
- Educate the public and professionals about OCD in order to raise awareness and improve the quality of treatment provided in the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
- Improve access to resources for those with OCD and their families in the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
- Advocate and lobby for the OCD community in the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
OCD Massachusetts had another great OCD Awareness Week in 2016 with free OCD screenings as well as events at the Massachusetts State House, UMASS Medical School, and Charles River Community Health. We would like to especially thank the IOCDF and Peace of Mind Foundation for helping us to make these events possible!
If you were unable to attend one of our Awareness Week events, join us at one of our monthly lectures in Belmont, Worcester, and Northampton. Kicking off 2017, our January topics will include perfectionism, mindfulness, and OCD in the classroom. Visit our website for more details!
