A free workshop for individuals and families who struggle to free themselves from obsessive compulsive disorder OCD tells you that if you just try harder at doing the compulsions, then everything will be better. But, the lie is this—the more you do the compulsions the worse your OCD gets, so trying harder at your OCD is not the best thing to do. Therefore, how about you try something diff erent? What if you and your family and your friends could, today, right now, start to change the way you think and behave in order to truly challenge your OCD. This workshop will show you how to do just that, with fun, humor, stories, and the 7 simple steps of Don’t Try Harder, Try Different. (Warning: Do not attend if you are grumpy and do not like to have fun!)

Welcome to OCD-Midwest.org

Welcome to OCD Midwest’s website. I am pleased that you have come to this site to get some of the most up-to-date information that you can about OCD for yourself, your family, or your friends.

This site will give you a lot of information to utilize.

  • First, there is a Find a Therapist section if you are looking for someone to treat your OCD. If you want to get listed as a provider on this site, please contact us via email and we will send you an application.
  • There is a calendar that lists all of the support groups that we know of currently. If you know of another support group, please send an e-mail to Dr. Patrick B. McGrath.
  • We will also have listings of up-to-date information about OCD, be it information about therapy techniques or research.
  • If you are a consumer of OCD services (a person with OCD or a friend or family member of someone with OCD) and you are interested in getting on a consumer advisory board, please contact Dr. Patrick McGrath.

OCD Midwest’s mission is to bring information about OCD to the Midwest states of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, though we of course welcome all other states in the Midwest to utilize our information as well. We hope to be able to be a source of the most up-to-date information about OCD, OCD research, and fund raising opportunities for the OCD community.
