This is an open casual semi-structured peer-led support group for young adults with OCD. The main purpose of this group is to help others gain insight from those who have had similar shared experiences, communicate resources, offer support, and also to just socialize and make new friends. According to the World Health Organization, “Peer support is generally understood to be a relationship of mutual support where people with similar life experiences offer each other support, especially as they move through difficult or challenging experiences.”

Before attending, please contact the facilitator for the specific meeting place and time details for that month. This is an open group; however, the availability of space in the group is limited and will be offered on an ordinal basis. Please contact the facilitator ahead of time if someone attending will need accommodations. Please contact the facilitator for additional information, questions, concerns, or if you have any comments about previous meetings or recommendations for future meetings.

Confidentiality, privacy, and the safety of the members of this support group and their information will be taken seriously through digital communication and during meetings to ensure the best discussion experiences, and any concerns regarding confidentiality or personal safety should be immediately brought to the attention of the facilitator. This support group is not intended to offer medical advice or serve as a substitute for the consultation, diagnosis, and/or medical treatment of a qualified professional psychologist, psychiatrist, physician, or healthcare provider. In the event of an emergency or crisis, call your doctor or 911 immediately, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
