Support arrangements for OCD sufferers in Northern Ireland are about to change. In 2017 our charitable company known as OCD NI will close. The Belfast peer support group, however, will continue. Arrangements have been made with OCD-UK to take over the group, so it will continue to support OCD sufferers here in Northern Ireland. We would like to thank everyone who supported our work, we have achieved more than we could ever have imagined. If you need OCD support, there are other charities available. OCD-UK continue to provide high quality online support and information for those who suffer from OCD.
OCD NI is a charity that exists to support adults and children living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in Northern Ireland. We support you through our own personal experience of living with OCD. Although Northern Ireland is our main catchment area, we provide many online services that can be utilised by anyone from anywhere. This is part of our dedication to helping every OCD sufferer we possibly can. We believe everyone deserves support. OCD does not discriminate, so neither do we. We'll always do the very best we can help. Read more...
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder which causes a person to have intrusive, unwelcome obsessional thoughts. These thoughts / obsessions often cause the sufferer to perform a repetitive compulsion or behaviour. These thoughts and behaviours are often highly distressing. People with OCD generally know their thoughts are irrational but their thoughts cause them so much distress, that they follow through with their compulsions to relieve the anxiety.
