    The International OCD Foundation is a donor-supported nonprofit organization. Founded in 1986 by a small group of individuals with OCD, the Foundation has grown into an international membership-based organization serving a broad community of individuals with OCD and related disorders, their family members and loved ones, and mental health professionals and researchers around the world. They have affiliates in 25 states and territories in the US, in addition to global partnerships with other OCD organizations and mental health non-profits around the world.

    Their mission is to help everyone affected by obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders to live full and productive lives. They do this by endeavoring to increase access to effective treatment, end the stigma associated with mental health issues, and foster a community for those affected by OCD and the professionals who treat them.

    They are a fantastic online resource because they offer a comprehensive web site with fact sheets and brochures, opportunities to get involved, resources for professionals, information about OCD in children, and so much more.

    Many congrats to them on their selection!
