About: 

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is very misunderstood and tiring condition which can make life extremely difficult for sufferers. In Australia, at least 2% of people have OCD. Globally, OCD has been recognized as the fourth most common psychiatric disorder. People with OCD can have obsessive thoughts, compulsive behaviour, or both. Often, if sufferers cannot perform their compulsive behaviour to distract themselves from their obsessive thoughts, their level of anxiety may increase and creates a great deal of distress for them.

If your life feels like it is on a downward spiral and you are struggling to cope, perhaps a support group might help. Our support group aims to provide a safe space for those who suffer from OCD to discuss their feelings and thoughts freely and without judgment.

Participants will also benefit from the evidence-based information and guidance that will be provided to promote healing. The caring and sharing of the group offers relief from isolation and loneliness.

Facilitator:

Jim Beer is dedicated to mental health issues. He has tremendous experience with many of the problems faced by those diagnosed with a mental illness.
