The AOCDF hosts a monthly peer support!
OCD Support Group
1. Obsessive – Compulsive Disorder GOAL Support Group
The group will meet once/month on the second Wednesday evening from 7pm-9pm in the King Edward Park Small Hall, 8008 – 81 Street, Edmonton. Groups are co-chaired by two aocdf volunteers with OCD lived experience. GOAL stands for “Giving OCD Another Lifestyle” based on the GOAL Handbook by Dr. Jonathan Grayson. The main objective of the GOAL group is to help each attendee develop self-help skills in an atmosphere that offers emotional and practical support.
The GOAL group is free and open to all adult individuals who suffer from OCD. Since the purpose of the group is to provide a peer support system and information exchange for people with this disorder, the groups are not open to family members or friends.
