Faith and OCD Conference

 Spring 2024 | Virtual

For individuals and families, faith leaders, and professionals.

This unique event began out of recognition that many people living with OCD initially seek assistance from a faith leader prior to a mental health provider. The conference was specifically created to address the needs of a diverse community — spanning all faiths, ethnicities, and backgrounds. We’ll provide education about effective treatment and ways to support those in the faith community living with OCD.

Online Hoarding Disorder Conference

Spring 2025 | Virtual

For individuals impacted by hoarding disorder and professionals who work with HD.

The Online Hoarding Disorder Conference provides critical information to individuals, families, and loved ones affected by HD to educate people and their families about effective and compassionate care.

It also offers an opportunity for professionals — from therapists and social workers to firefighters and other public safety officials — to learn how to work effectively and compassionately with individuals with hoarding disorder (HD). Professionals will hear from leading researchers and experts in the field and will walk away with a new understanding and practical strategies for working with those affected by HD.
