Liverpool OCD Support Group

The Liverpool OCD support group is open to sufferers, family members and friends, and is an informal meeting where people affected by OCD can talk to others in a friendly, non-judgemental way.

The group does not offer specific therapy or professional guidance, but is an opportunity to share ideas and strategies, and to provide mutual support.

Support Group Venue


The Brian Charity (formerly the Neurosupport Centre),
Norton Street,
Liverpool
L3 8LR

The Brain Charity building is situated on the northbound lane of Norton Road (from London Road).

We meet in the Seminar Room

The meeting usually takes place in the seminar room, although if other events are taking place the room will be indicated with a support group sign.

Research
Matthew Simpson is inviting members of the Liverpool Group to take part in a study looking at attitudes and experiences of trivialisation/normalisation of OCD.  You can take part if you are over 18 and have a diagnosis of OCD. You will be asked to complete a Q sort which involves sorting a set of statements on a grid, based on how much you agree/disagree with them.  If you are interested, please click this link to complete the survey which should take 20 minutes.  (Please note this is independent of OCD-UK).
