Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
We believe that support groups can play an important role in coping with and overcoming OCD.
GOAL (Giving Obsessive-compulsive Another Lifestyle) support groups started in Philadelphia in 1981 when Jonathan Grayson and Gayle Frankel started the first support group for OCD in the country. From that time on, the GOAL approach has been a way has been a powerful way for individuals suffering from OCD to help themselves.
What is a GOAL support group?
Think of GOAL as a support group plus. That is, like all support groups, members find the comfort and support from one another that sharing a similar problem brings. GOAL goes beyond providing support and gives members a way to help one another.
