The Canadian Institute for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (CIOCD) is dedicated to improving the quality and accessibility of evidence based specialized clinical care for children, adolescents, and adults suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) across Canada as well as internationally. The global need for dissemination of expertise and additional resources to effectively assess and treat OCD is urgent.

CIOCD Programs:

A. The 100% Canadian Affiliate Outreach Educational Program (AEOP) national network is comprised of exclusively Canadian professional members with outreach and representation across Canada. Educational and training programs to improve early detection and intervention are offered to professionals.

The AEOP is currently completing a comprehensive national survey of services and training for OCD across Canada to inform educational and intervention initiatives.

Please see Public Page for listing of Canadian services for OCD and related Disorders.

B. The International Accreditation Task Force (ATF) comprises experts on specialized treatments for OCD and related disorders through the lifespan (pediatric, youth, and adult) representing 20 nations. (Please see News and Accreditation Page)

C. The Scientific Advisory Committee includes national and international OCD experts and other professionals.

D. The Outreach and Development Committee is headed by dedicated collaborators, Sherri Bennett, LLB, Emily Zych, MA. and Mrs Rosanna Chenier. Professionals, community leaders, local groups, and OCD sufferers and their families are involved with the Institute. New participants are welcome.

Your gift can change the life of persons suffering from OCD.
