OCD Awareness Week 2017

OCD Awareness Week 2017

People still think OCD means being neat, tidy, clean and organised. We need to say to them, 'think again!'. We need to tell them that Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a seriously debilitating disorder which leads the sufferer to having unwanted debilitating intrusive thoughts rendering day-to-day life a living nightmare. That's OCD!

Which is exactly why we are promoting OCD Awareness Week again in October 2017 (8-14th October 2017).

OCD Awareness Week is a global effort to raise awareness and understanding about OCD, with the goal of educating people and working towards removing misunderstanding and stigma that can be caused by misrepresentation of OCD. Launched in 2009 by the International OCD Foundation (a US based charity), OCD Awareness Week is now promoted by a number of organisations across the world, and OCD-UK are delighted to be taking the lead here in the UK.

For 2017 we have already liaised with various media outlets, and hope to see some attention given to OCD Awareness Week in the media. We will be publishing a series of content each day during OCD Awareness Week again focussing on the myths and misconceptions about OCD. We have also invested in a series of posters and handouts which we can send you if you're able to distribute in your workplace, school or uni, just let us know how many you want and your postal address.
