The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
OCD-UK INFORMATION ROADSHOW
The OCD-UK Roadshow brings expert OCD advice, information and support directly to you.
Sunday 18th August 2019
Our Edinburgh event is in partnership with the Ladybones show * which is performing at the Edinburgh Fringe festival this August. The roadshow will feature a presentation and discussion with star of the show, Sorcha McCaffrey.
What is the OCD-UK Information Roadshow?
Launching this year, in addition to our annual conference we will be bringing our OCD information roadshow across England, Wales and Northern Ireland throughout the rest of this year and 2020. Our free open roadshows give us the opportunity to travel to parts of the country where our conference won’t reach this year and be there to offer attendees presentations, information, advice, local treatment signposting and support about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
Whether you have a specific question about OCD treatment or more complicated advocacy needs, we aim to offer practical advice and support on the day. We can put you in contact with local and national services, as well as recommending top self-help materials and offer our highly acclaimed information booklets for you to take away free of charge.
How can the OCD Information Roadshow help you?
The OCD-UK roadshow is open to anybody, whether you suffer with OCD yourself or have a loved one that suffers, we are there to help you. For example;
- If you are worried you or a loved one might suffer with OCD, whilst we can’t diagnose we can certainly advise and guide you
- If you or a loved one have been newly diagnosed with OCD and you’re looking for more information and support
- If you are already receiving treatment or previously had treatment and feel you still need help we can advise and discuss your treatment options
Whatever your relationship dynamic to OCD we will do our very best to advise and help you. No need to book, just come along on the day of the roadshow.
Our Edinburgh OCD Information Roadshow will take place at the Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43-45 High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1SR between 13:00 - 16:00.

Where will the OCD-UK Information Roadshow be next?
At the moment (July 2019) we don't have an exact date for our next roadshow, but we do plan to visit Wales soon. We're currently working with local partners to secure roadshow venues to help OCD-UK can make better use of our limited resources.
Please do revisit this page soon for news about future events and locations and keep an eye on our social media channels.
