Michigan OCD Study.
The University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry is conducting a research study using
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as a treatment for adults and teenagers with Obsessive
Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Click here for the adult and teenager flyers.
We have talked about
the website OCDchallenge.com
This website offers an interactive
self-help program for those dealing with OCD, and is particularly useful for individuals who
cannot afford or do not have access to standard OCD treatment.
There used to be a
charge to use the site (which was very reasonable and affordable).
We have been told that the site is now COMPLETELY FREE, courtesy of the Peace of Mind
If you choose to try this
site, please let us know how you like it, if you think it is effective,
useful, or "do-able" for OCD sufferers. We'd like to hear from you.
Researchers at Case Western
Reserve University are conducting two online studies about
the relationships of individuals with OCD or hoarding. Each study involves completing
questionnaires online about relationships, emotions and OCD. You must be at least 18 to participate.
Those who participate may enter into a raffle for a Target gift card. The information gathered
from this study may help to improve therapies for OCD. For more information, visit their
