Our Group Meetings

Since OCD Support started back in 2011 we have met on a monthly basis to offer a self-help support group for anyone who is affected by OCD or its accompanying mental health conditions.

The group meetings are hosted by one or more of our volunteers and provide a friendly, non-judgemental space for people to talk in confidence.

We open our doors to anyone affected by OCD and related mental health conditions, so if you are a friend or family member who cares for someone with OCD you are still welcome to come and join our group.

As well as the monthly meetings we offer a range of online support where we can be contacted on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. We post positive mental health articles and affiliate with local services to ensure everyone has somewhere they can turn to.

When And Where

Our group meetings take place 7pm - 9pm on the first Monday of every month. If one of our group meetings falls on a bank holiday it will then be held at 7pm on the second Monday of the month.

The meetings are free to attend for anyone over the age of eighteen years. Anyone aged sixteen to eighteen can still attend but would need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you feel that you may be nervous about coming along to one of our meetings you are more than welcome to bring a friend, partner or family member along with you.

So come and join us in one of our meetings at The Quaker Meeting House. You can find us located at 2-10 Bean Street, Anlaby Road, Hull, HU3 2PR, or by using Google Maps below.

A Message from the Founder...

I remember reaching the hardest part of my personal battle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and thinking “I can’t possibly be the only person feeling like this?!” 

A few years later I founded OCD SUPPORT, with the hope individuals affected by OCD would know they did not have to fight their battle alone. I wanted the core purpose of OCD SUPPORT to be a safe and confidential space where difficult experiences and coping strategies could be shared with others who could listen and relate. I also believed this support should be available for not just the person living with OCD, but their carers, loved ones and friends too.  

When our doors opened for the very first time back in 2010, people came and filled the room we had hired; nobody should have to live with OCD but seeing all these people answered my earlier question… 

“I can’t possibly be the only person feeling like this?….Debbie, you are most certainly not!” 

I no longer Chair OCD SUPPORT but still get involved as and where I can. I feel humbled and proud to have been part of such a supportive network and urge anybody wishing to know more about the work OCD SUPPORT do, to get in touch.

We can face this together
