The mission of the International OCD Foundation is to provide assistance to those affected by obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders. With the creation of the Louisiana affiliate, OCD Louisiana, we aim to provide education, resources, and support to the local community to increase access to effective treatment and promote awareness about OCD and related disorders. We hope to develop a community for those affected by OCD and related disorders and the professionals who treat them.
Like our parent organization, OCD Louisiana will be a donor-supported nonprofit organization run by volunteers. Our organization will be open to anyone impacted by or interested in OCD, Hoarding Disorder, Trichotillomania (Hair-Pulling Disorder), Excoriation (Skin-Picking) Disorder, and other related disorders. We welcome individuals who suffer from one of these conditions, their family members and friends, mental health professionals, researchers, educators, religious leaders, and/or other interested community members.
