NEW OCD-UK Book Club – Month: May

Chosen by the Derby OCD Support Group

Break free from OCD

 

About Book Club

  • The purpose of the book club is not to review the book, but to encourage those affected by OCD to engage in the self-help resources available to them;
  • and to promote discussion to allow the community, and possibly even some of the authors, to help readers understand aspects of the book they struggle to work through.
  • Helping to create and maintain a recovery focussed mindset.
  • If you’ve already read a book, no harm and many advantages of re-reading!
  • Sometimes it’s just fun to read and help others understand a book.

Specialist NHS clinic update

An update for those trying to access OCD treatment at the Specialist NHS psychological service for anxiety and related problems based at the University of Bath run by Avon and Wiltshire Partnership Trust (AWP. In January AWP published this update on their website:

12 January 2018

Unfortunately, the Specialist Anxiety Disorders Clinic is not able to accept any new referrals at present due to senior staff changes. 

An update will be issued in the next couple of weeks when we have more information regarding these changes. 

OCD-UK’s understanding is that those patients that were already receiving treatment or had received funding for treatment and accepted by the clinic before the January update should not be affected. We expect to be able to update more on this later in the month.
