Information and news about OCD-UK

Welcome to the new OCD-UK website

A portal of independent advice and information, informative content and social i

Six years ago we launched our original website, which has stood the test of time and has always received high praise for its simple, yet effective design and informative content for the OCD community. Since that time our website has grown, and was often imitated, even copied, and as technology advances we felt it was time to make changes to our website and make the best use of latest website advancements.

Over the last few weeks we have been working hard on our new website. We have used the latest website technology to create a database driven website which will allow for further expansion and allow us to implement many more features to benefit the OCD community.

OCD-UK Welcome New Patron

Ian Puleston-Davies on the Corrie set

During our annual conference in Cambridge during December, we heard about the OCD experiences of the writer and actor Ian Puleston-Davies, who later admitted that standing on stage on Saturday was far more nerve wracking than his forthcoming live episode of Coronation Street, which aired in December.

Ian spoke very candidly about his own experiences of OCD, which still plague him today, and how they partly inspired him to co-write the comedy drama about a character with OCD, Dirty, Filthy, Love which was shown on ITV in 2005.
