Support groups are an important tool for individuals with OCD, their family members, and friends. Making a connection with others who are impacted by OCD provides a sense of community, and lets you know you are not alone in this struggle. You can gain valuable insight, practical ideas, and education from experts and other OCD families in your area. Please call us at 832-474-1327 or email us at Info@Peaceofmind.com.

Kid’s Online Support Group

  1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm (CST) Register Here

The Peace of Mind Foundation’s Online Kids and Teens OCD Support Group goal is to help young OCD sufferers connect with peers and gain emotional and practical support through peer relationships. We hope that this group will help young people realize they are not alone in their journey of taking control of their OCD. At each meeting, a group facilitator will lead a discussion on educational topics involving evidence-based ways to decrease OCD symptoms. This group is not intended to replace treatment, but to provide participants with additional support. Family members may attend meetings, but we ask that they do not participate in a group for the purpose of allowing all young people space to share if desired. This is an online web-based face-to-face platform however you can choose to have your video on or off.

Elizabeth McIngvale's family was once told that her illness was too severe and they should accept that she would be in a facility for the rest of her life. On February 5, 2002, Liz was dropped off at the Menninger Clinic, and she thought her life was over. She sat down on a couch next to a girl her same age. All the girl said was, "It's okay, I cried too". That was the start of Liz and Amy's friendship and that one sentence gave Liz hope.

This video is about finding someone that truly understands your struggles. Having support and friendship with someone that has felt the same way as you are very important.

Liz and Amy also discuss the importance of finding the purpose for your pain. Finding your passion and going for it.

If you are looking to connect with someone, we want to encourage you to find a support group (online or in-person), visit peaceofmind.com, IOCDF.org, or your local NAMI and MHA chapter for a list of support groups in your area.
