Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Support Group

What is OCD?

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that affects two to three percent of the population (more than 500,000 Australians). It usually begins in late childhood or early adolescence. People with OCD experience recurrent and persistent thoughts, images or impulses that are intrusive and unwanted (obsessions). They also perform repetitive and ritualistic actions that are excessive, time-consuming and distressing (compulsions). People with OCD are usually aware of the irrational and excessive nature of their obsessions and compulsions. However, they feel unable to control their obsessions or resist their compulsions.

Join OCD Support Group

The aim of this group is to support attendees with their wellbeing, promote connectedness, and reduce isolation. The support group provides the participants with guidance and advice about mental health, self-care and a safe space to share their concerns and challenges.
