The Conference format allows your company to engage with niche segments of the OCD community through highly targeted presentations all under the same roof!

Faith and Mental Health Conference
Monday, May 9, 2022
For those navigating and treating anxiety across diverse faith-based practices.

The International OCD Foundation is excited to present its second Faith and Mental Health Conference. This event was started out of a recognition that many individuals living with a mental health condition first seek assistance from their faith leaders prior to a mental health provider. The conference has been created specifically to address the needs of this diverse community, spanning all faiths, ethnicities, and races. We hope to help bring awareness about effective treatments, support to those impacted by a mental health condition, and ways to best work together. Learn more about the Faith and Mental Health Conference.

IOCDF Research Symposium (Hybrid Event)
Thursday, July 7, 2022
For researchers who work in the field of OCD and related disorders. Streamed live from the Annual OCD Conference.

The goal of the IOCDF Research Symposium is to provide a forum for high-level discussion of research topics among people who specialize in the study of OCD and related disorders. The IOCDF Research Symposium grew out of the popular regional New England OCD Research Symposium (NERS), originally created by Dr. Christopher Pittenger and co-sponsored by Yale University and the International OCD Foundation. In an effort to expand the reach of this invaluable research forum, we began offering the symposium as a Pre-Conference event in 2016. Check out last year's Virtual Research Symposium schedule for a preview of what the 2022 program will look like! Learn more about the IOCDF Research Symposium.
