OCD Chicago

Committed to OCD Education and Support

OCD Chicago, a leading provider of consumer resources to cope with and conquer Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), works to increase public and professional awareness of OCD, educate and support people with OCD and their families, and encourage research into new treatments and a cure.

Requests for our services have risen to a new level, largely due to increased media attention on mental health issues and brain disorders such as OCD.  We reach out with encouragement and compassion to assure people with OCD that they are not alone and help them to manage the disorder.

Founded in 1994, we are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Our Services

Consumer Education and Support

We provide OCD sufferers and their families with the latest information on this disorder, information about local treatment providers and support groups and the opportunity to discuss their options with an OCD-knowledgeable professional. 

Our web site is one of the most comprehensive sources of information for people affected by OCD and is also a widely-used resource for medical professionals, educators, clergy and the media. Our popular series of OCD Guides offers practical information and steps to improve the lives of OCD sufferers and their families.

Professional Education

We offer mental health professionals opportunities to increase their knowledge of OCD and improve their ability to treat patients effectively.

Public Awareness

We provide OCD-knowledgeable speakers to public forums, schools and the news media.  Our speakers help audiences understand more about OCD and reduce the stigma of mental illness.

For Teachers, Counselors and Social Workers

Our OCD Education Station web site is a comprehensive resource developed by OCD Chicago especially for the needs of school teachers, counselors and social workers.  With the right knowledge, any of these professionals can make the difference in the life of a child struggling with this potentially devastating disorder.
