Zoom OCD Meetings

Since the coronavirus pandemic began, OCD-UK have been hosting  support groups online.

So with all our face-to-face groups currently suspended until further notice, we have been hosting Zoom video support group meetings every Tuesday and Thursday since last summer (2020).  We are also hosting  regular themed meetings on Wednesday's.

The two weekly support group meetings on a Tuesday and Thursday are open OCD peer support groups, and accessible to people with OCD or family members/partners/friends of OCD sufferers (aged 18 years and over). 

There are also regular themed Wednesday meetings open to different groups or for those with a specific interest in that session's theme.

Our charity is only funded to offer services for UK residents and advice offered will be UK specific, we are unable to make the groups available to anyone living outside the UK at this time.

Please scroll down for further information about all meetings.

Registration Instructions
If you wish to take part in any of these meetings you will need to register in advance for each meeting you wish to be part of. Click the link on the meeting date you wish to register for. Meeting registration will be opened one week prior to the meeting date. Please note we may close registration once capacity is reached.

If registration is closed due to maximum capacity but you would like to attend, please contact: groups@ocduk.org to be placed on a cancellation list. You will be notified if a place becomes available.

Once registered the Zoom system will email you a meeting link. It is that link you will use to access the meeting so please keep this email/link safe.

Group Cancellations

If you are unable to attend the meeting, please cancel your place as soon as possible by following the cancel link in the original Zoom registration confirmation email. Alternatively, please contact us via email: groups@ocduk.org and we can resend your Zoom registration email to enable you to cancel your place.

This helps us to offer the place to other individuals who wish to attend. Unfortunately, due to a high number of no shows at recent meetings preventing people on our cancellation lists from attending, we may have to restrict registration where multiple no shows have occurred.
