OCD TEXAS, Texas affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF), is a nonprofit support and advocacy organization for people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and related disorders. We are dedicated to bringing together OCD sufferers, their families and friends, researchers and treating professionals across Texas, in order to:
- educate the public and professionals about OCD and related disorders in order to raise awareness and improve the quality of treatment provided;
- improve access to resources for those with OCD and their families so that individuals afflicted with OCD and related disorders can better identify, seek, and gain access to appropriate support and affordable treatment;
- support research toward better understanding of and more effective treatments for OCD and related disorders;
- advocate and lobby for the OCD community.
In October each year, in conjunction with International OCD Awareness Week, we sponsor and support special awareness-raising events. This year we will be hosting a conference, in San Antonio Oct 19 & 20, featuring authors of books on OCD and related disorders, and we are pleased to bring you the OCD Book Festival.
