OCD Action was formed in 1994 to help those affected with OCD.
The Charity’s 2012-2015 Strategic Plan sets out OCD Action’s vision and the core activities that the Charity plans to undertake. Its purpose is to help the Trustees and the Director plan ahead and ensure that there are clear targets and objectives for each year, so that they are confident that all activities work towards achieving the Charity’s vision.
Our vision is for a society where OCD is better understood and diagnosed quickly, where appropriate treatment options are open and accessible, where support and information are readily available and where nobody feels ashamed to ask for help – it’s time to act.
We are here because OCD tears families apart and leaves people isolated and exhausted. OCD ruins lives. It is a sad fact that many people with OCD delay seeking help. They put up with it for too long, perhaps thinking that nothing can be done or just not knowing where to turn. OCD Action believes in taking action. We want people affected by OCD to seek help, to understand their treatment options and find the support and motivation they need to fight back. OCD is treatable, it can get better.
