OCD Centre manitoba (ocdc)


We are a group that strives to assist and educate people affected by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and spectrum disorders such as trichotillomania, hypochondriasis, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).

The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Centre of Manitoba Inc. (OCDC), initially called the OCD Information and Support Centre, was incorporated in 1995 and received charitable status shortly after.  The OCDC began with volunteers who wanted to gather and share OCD information and community resources with individuals, families, health practitioners, and teaching professionals.  Psychiatrists and psychologists who treated patients with OCD began to promote OCDC’s services and support groups and service demands increased.

There has been continued progress over the years and OCDC has developed supports and resources to meet the needs of individuals and families.  OCDC shares office space with other mental health organizations that assist people with anxiety and mood disorders, allowing us to share resources while providing targeted services like ERP (exposure response prevention) to those affected by OCD.

Our services include Support Groups, Educational Sessions, Resource Library, Private Consultations, and various Presentations.
