2020 Virtual OCD-UK Conference - Welcome to Hotel OCD-UK, flying the flag for recovery!

Family Focus Room

Family members are often the forgotten sufferer when it comes to OCD. So this room will focus on bringing understanding and knowledge of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder to families. 

Scroll down this page for the Saturday and Sunday agenda for our family focus room.  Please do keep checking back as we may add or change timings slightly right up until the day of the conference.

Our virtual conference is completely free of charge, but should you find a presentation helpful, we welcome a small donation for each presentation you attend, to help us cover our platform costs.
