The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
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.
The Brian Charity (formerly the Neurosupport Centre),
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.
The Liverpool OCD support group usually meets once a month, usually on the first Wednesday of the month between 5pm and 6/6:30pm. The group is very relaxed, so please don't worry if you are a little late or have to leave early.
This group is very well attended, and whilst we try and given everyone talk-time, this is not always possible.
January through until end of March - No physical meeting because of the coronavirus outbreak. April and May meetings to be reviewed nearer the time.
Until then the Liverpool Support Group will meet online using Zoom. To attend those groups you will need to register in advance for each meeting you wish to attend.To register click the link on the date of the meeting you wish to attend.

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).
You can contact Catherine who will be co-hosting the support group by emailing email@example.com. Catherine runs the support group in a voluntary capacity and works full time, so please allow at least 48 hours for a response.
