Annual OCD Conference

Since 1993, the Annual OCD Conference has been the only national meeting focused solely on obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders. The unique event allows people with OCD and their loved ones to learn about the latest OCD treatment and information alongside the mental health professionals who care for them.

Every year attendees continue to tell us what a great experience the Conference is, and we couldn’t agree more. This year, at the 24th Annual OCD Conference in San Francisco, we had a record 1,742 attendees from 21 countries! We hope that the Conference can continue to grow as a resource for all members of the OCD community. 

The Conference features more than 100 presentations, workshops, and seminars as well as nearly two-dozen support groups and various evening events. Our presenters include some of the most experienced and knowledgeable clinicians and researchers in the field, as well as people with OCD and family members sharing their stories about life with OCD. We are pleased to announce the dates and locations for our upcoming Conferences for 2018 and 2019.

“Throughout the Conference, there were no OCDs versus non-OCDs, ‘healthy’ professionals versus ‘troubled’ attendants. There were no scholars versus ignorants, problem-solvers versus problem-havers, treating-therapists versus treated-patients, supporters versus supported. Instead, there was a group of individuals, homogenized by a shared wish; a group of people deeply touched, moved and motivated by the same vision, inspired by hope.” – Ro Vital
