Our Work

The mission of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) is to help individuals with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders to live full and productive lives. IOCDF aims 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. 


The International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) is the foremost resource about OCD and related disorders. Thanks to the patronage of members and donors, the IOCDF is able to provide support, education, and resources for those affected by OCD and related disorders, as well as for the professionals who treat them. Based in Boston, the IOCDF has affiliates in 24 states and territories, as well as 11 Global Partners. Since their founding in 1986, the IOCDF has granted millions of dollars for OCD research, trained thousands of professionals to effectively treat OCD, and helped to improve the lives of millions affected by OCD and related disorders.
