The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
Derby OCD Support Group
Summer 2020 Update: The Derby group is still without a venue, however during the COVID-19 outbreak all meetings have moved online. Details are below under dates.
The Derby OCD Support Group is open to anyone affected by Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, be they sufferers, family members or friends. We provide an informal meeting where people affected by OCD can talk to others in a friendly, understanding and non-judgmental way. Our group is keen to promote the belief that recovery from OCD is possible.
The group does not offer specific therapy or professional guidance, but instead, it is an opportunity to share ideas and strategies, and to provide mutual support, and to share experiences and offer advice about accessing local treatment services.
Attendance is free of charge, and no pre-booking is necessary, just come along on the evening of the group and introduce yourself to the group facilitator, usually Ashley.
The group is facilitated by trained service users, all of whom have OCD or have experienced OCD in the past and have been vetted by OCD-UK for your confidence.
This support group is fully funded by OCD-UK, donations to OCD-UK are welcomed to help continue funding support groups like this one.
2020 and 2021 Meetings
Until further notice we are not offering physical meetings because of the coronavirus outbreak. We hope to resume them in early 2021.
Until then OCD-UK offer support through Zoom video support groups, which meet every week. For details of how to access this meetings please visit our Zoom group page.
In the meantime you can access community support using an alias via the OCD-UK forums at: www.ocdforums.org.
If you need to contact Ashley, please be sure to state 'Derby' group so he is aware of which group you are enquiring about (he is involved in several OCD groups).
