The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
OCD-UK Annual Conference – Chester
However, we know that many of the people we serve look to us for help at times of crisis (for those of us with OCD, everyday feels like our own personal crisis long before lockdown) and part of our job is to offer that help and even more importantly, HOPE.
Therefore we are making tentative plans to host our annual conference in Chester on the North Wales/England border on Saturday 17th October.
Until we know it is absolutely safe for people to gather as a group again we will not be opening for ticketing bookings, but we know from some of our conversations that simply having a date to look forward to will prove comforting for many of our conference guests.
At any time hearing from OCD specialists can be so empowering, and that is most likely going to be even more invaluable this year than ever before. We hope that the OCD specialists that we work with, existing friends and new, will make themselves available for the OCD-UK conference to ensure we can give delegates access to some of the very best information and support available.
We will also do our part and ensure that we can make at least 50 tickets available for those on low income either complimentary or at a vastly reduced nominal £10-15 (to help cover refreshment costs).
We hope the entire weekend will become a celebration of life and freedom which we have all taken for granted and right now seems less positive, we hope that you can join us!
Once we know it is safe to do so we will open bookings and very much hope that many of you will be able to join us for a day of mutual understanding, support and hope that will promote belief that life free from OCD is possible.
