Education, Access, Research, and Advocacy
OCD TEXAS is an official affiliate of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) and 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:
1) Educate the public and professionals about OCD and related disorders in order to raise awareness and improve the quality of treatment provided;
2) 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;
3) Support research toward better understanding of and more effective treatments for OCD and related disorders;
4) Advocate and lobby for the OCD community
OCD Texas engages in a variety of activities to support the OCD community, including educational events, awareness campaigns, special projects, and our annual One Million Steps for OCD Walk. We strive to increase awareness and reduce stigma surrounding OCD.
