Facebook Group

The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder of Massachusetts (OCDM) was formed in 1995 by a small group of people diagnosed with OCD, their families and friends. This affiliate of the national Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation was organized in response to the absence of local support groups and educational resources. Although its name suggests a jurisdiction limited to the Greater Boston area, it extends its services in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. In fact, the affiliate has responded to inquiries from all parts of the United States and overseas.

The OCDM is dedicated to bringing together OCD sufferers and their loved ones in order to educate the Greater Boston community about this devastating illness. The primary goals of the organization are:

  • to assist individuals afflicted with OCD identify, seek, and gain access to appropriate support and affordable treatment;
  • to provide education and information about OCD and related disorders to sufferers and their families;
  • to assist those diagnosed with OCD to become recognized as valuable members of their community;

Since its inauguration, the OCDM has initiated a number of projects. The affiliate sponsors weekly support groups and a monthly lecture series about OCD and related topics. The organization has also sponsored large teacher conferences meant to help teachers recognize and manage OCD in the classroom. The OCDM maintains and distributes a list of doctors in the Greater Boston area with an OCD speciality.
