New OCD-UK Logo

New OCD-UK Logo

Say hello to our new logo, and let us explain the reasoning behind our logo change.

One of our objectives is to raise awareness of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder through effective and accurate awareness campaigns. In recent years we have seen the OCD acronym and 'meaning' hijacked to suggest a person who is pernickety and fussy. During the next few years we want to focus some of our awareness projects to change the perception that everyone is a ‘little OCD’, highlight the D in OCD and ensure the general public understand that the D in OCD stands for Disorder, hence our new logo.
