A few of our team members have struggled immensely with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Trapped in a cycle of disturbing thoughts and exhausting attempts to get rid of them, we began to pull away from school, work, relationships, and family life.
We learned firsthand how hard it is to get any helpful information, receive a useful diagnosis, and find a specialist who’s affordable and has any availability.
Eventually, we received evidence-based treatment and got better. But getting effective care for OCD shouldn’t be this hard, and people shouldn’t have to figure it all out while they’re already struggling. That’s what motivates us to make NOCD a comprehensive resource for anyone with OCD around the world.
