OCD Action’s purpose is to improve the lives of people affected by the isolating and debilitating mental health condition Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Their vision is for a society where OCD is better understood and diagnosed quickly, where appropriate treatment options are open and accessible, where support and information are readily available and where nobody feels ashamed to ask for help.
The charity provides one-to-one support and information as well as working to affect change nationally to improve the lives of all people affected by OCD.
In 2017, the Masonic Charitable Foundation donated £3,000 to OCD Action
There is a growing demand for OCD Action’s support and this grant has helped the charity reach even more people in need by helping to fund their work with young people, including their dedicated youth website and expanding their telephone helpline.
This generous grant is critical in helping to fund two of our key services for people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. This grant has allowed us to provide vital important information and support to more people living with this severe and debilitating mental health condition, which unfortunately is routinely trivialised in the media and misdiagnosed by healthcare professionals with devastating consequences for the well-being of those affected.
