OCD Awareness Week

OCD Awareness Week is an international effort taking place the second full week of October each year to raise awareness and understanding about obsessive compulsive disorder and related disorders, with the goal of helping more people to get timely access to appropriate and effective treatment. Launched in 2009 by the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF), OCD Awareness Week is now celebrated by a number of organizations across the US and around the world — including OCD Sacramento — with events such as OCD screening days, lectures, conferences, fundraisers, online Q&As, and more.

OCD Sacramento is a proud support of OCD Awareness Week and will be holding an OCD Awareness Week Therapist Networking Event!

OCD Sacramento, an official affiliate of the International OCD Foundation, is honored to host its annual networking event in commemoration of OCD Awareness Week held between October 9-15, 2016. Sponsored by The Anxiety Treatment Center of Sacramento and Roseville, Azure Acres, Timberline Knolls, Eating Recovery Center, and Black Stallion Winery, this celebration is for all mental health professionals who are interested in connecting with others in the community to share their expertise. Anxiety Disorders share significant overlap with other disorders and we invite you to join us to collaborate on how through joint effects, we can serve not only this population, but those you are working with as well. Enjoy great food, drinks, and an amazing networking opportunity. Held at The Anxiety Treatment Center of Sacramento at 9300 Tech Center Drive, Suite 250, Sacramento, CA from 6:30pm-11pm. RSVP requested by October 7, 2016. Contact Dr. Robin Zasio, PsyD, LCSW at (916) 366-0647 or email drrobin@atcsac.net.
