Open To: Individuals with OCD & their families

Type: Professionally Assisted Group

Fairfield County OCD Support Group is a professionally assisted OCD support group organized and moderated by two prominent mental health professionals.

Its mission is to provide an informative group forum which can provide a supportive, informal, empathetic environment for people coping with OCD.

The group consists of individuals who are OCD sufferers. Usually, these individuals include those who are currently seeking treatment and those who have recovered from their OCD and are presently managing their symptoms. In addition, family members and friends of those who are suffering from OCD are also welcome to participate. In our meetings, we discuss specific topics, such as symptoms, cognitive behavior therapy, medication, etc.

The objective of this support group is to be informational, not therapeutic.

Behavioral Wellness Clinic OCD Support Group

The OCD Support Group at the Behavioral Wellness Clinic (Tolland, CT), led by Dr. Monnica Williams and Mailae Halstead, meets for one hour every Tuesday at 4-5 pm EST on Zoom. The group consists of adults who have been suffering from OCD and are looking for a support-oriented group. The group can be used as an adjunct to psychotherapy, where people can speak about experience on exposure homework assignments, OCD related concerns that arise in life situations, or struggles engaging in activities due to their OCD. Other experienced group members can give advice on how to stay on track and how to overcome the obstacles they may be facing.

If you are interested, please contact them by phone at 860-830-7838 or email them at for more information. Meeting information will then be sent to you.

Note: The fee is $45 per session, but they offer a sliding scale to those with financial hardships.

Are you sick and tired of playing mental ping pong all day? Have you searched hundreds of different therapists? Have you googled endlessly asking for answers on how to get better from OCD? I get it, I have been there and so has everyone in our support group. We call our group, OCD Survivors and Thrivers for a reason and that is because with the support from one another, we have a fighting chance to live a meaningful and impactful life. If you are struggling with OCD and want to connect with others who are going through the same journey that you are on, then this is the group for you. We come from all different backgrounds and bring different types of OCD experiences to light. These meetings follow a proven and effective OCD support group format adopted from The Anxiety and OCD Treatment Center of Philadelphia. This format is the result of over 2 decades of developing, iterating, and refining the operation of an effective OCD specific support group.
