    Affirming  the

    Black & OCD Experience

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

    Black Americans in the U.S. are suffering with OCD at a rate equivalent to the larger U.S. population but are less likely to have access to treatment. When able to find help, few Black Americans with OCD receive the recommended specialized treatment and fewer Black Americans with OCD use medication (Himle et al., 2008).

    Black youth and adults with OCD are underserved in the mental health community and underrepresented in OCD research. ~IOCDF 2012, 2016
