There is a fair bit of available online information about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders. Many of these resources have been developed and are maintained by others who also suffer from this same disorder. Here, we list a few of our favorite websites on OCD.
The Obsessive-Compulsive Foundation
The Foundation provides referrals to both treatment centers and mental-health professionals, and helps coordinate support groups, at the community level, throughout the world. Public education is conducted by the distribution of literature, lectures, and presentations. The Web site contains information about OCD, trichotillomania, and the disorder in children.
The National Instituteof Health (NIH) Medline Plus website is an excellant source of information and links to everything from medical news and clinical trials and ongoing research
