Creating a path towards your OCD recovery.

OCD Support Group

Our Mission

At The OCD Academy, our mission is threefold. We aim to:

 1.  Increase knowledge and awareness regarding OCD. Due to the variety of ways in which OCD presents, it can often be misunderstood by those living with OCD, the general public, and both mental and medical health professionals.

 2.  Provide accessible and comprehensive information about OCD. Information is key to helping individuals struggling with OCD, family members of loved ones with OCD, and providers supporting those with OCD.

 3.  Reduce stigma associated with OCD.

What We Offer

The OCD Academy offers a range of quality educational materials on OCD for people struggling with OCD, loved ones of those with OCD, and clinicians. Our content includes information dedicated to providing an overview of OCD, along with educational material regarding a range of different OCD themes. In addition, our resources include targeted content focused on specific treatment and recovery-related topics.


We have organized the material within this website so the resources flow in an accessible way. We welcome you to review each main section of the website or to select the sections of specific interest to you.

Free Resources

We believe in the value of education – understanding OCD, the factors that maintain the OCD cycle, and helpful (and unhelpful) therapeutic approaches are an important and empowering part of the OCD recovery process. Our collection of free resources includes information on different OCD themes, recovery-related information, and the OCD Awareness Scale.


Exposures are the gold standard treatment approach for OCD. When doing exposures, people do the things that trigger their OCD and learn to face their fears. It helps people make values-based choices instead of being controlled by OCD.

Exposures Seem Scary

For exposures to be helpful, they need to make us feel uncomfortable. They help us learn to let go of control and do the opposite of what OCD is telling us to do, and this can feel scary. The exposure process is designed to build confidence!

Support and OCD

People often use reason and logic to try to help their loved ones with OCD. As OCD is based on doubt, no amount of logic can make the worries disappear. Trying to reason with OCD actually serves to make it grow stronger.
