Hi, The purpose of this group is to build community with other people who are diagnosed or have been diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders. Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder in which a person has certain thoughts repeatedly (called "obsessions") or feels the need to perform certain routines repeatedly (called "compulsions") to an extent which generates distress or impairs general functioning. I would also like to open this group up for those who may experience severe anxiety and depression. You should join if you want to meet new friends who also have OCD and related disorders and are looking for a support system. I want this group to be a safe and welcoming space, where we support and encourage one another. For the events I hope to plan, include food, wine, or coffee meet ups, zoom meetups, hiking, etc. I'm open to suggestions.
