Welcome

Welcome to the website for the International College of Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders (ICOCS).

The ICOCS is primarily aimed at advancing, promoting and facilitating research into the causes and consequences of obsessive compulsive disorder and obsessive compulsive spectrum disorders. The organization intends to aid and stimulate mental health professionals and others to develop research projects in this field, and to help coordinate research efforts amongst members. To this end, our website will be dedicated to news, research findings, funding opportunities and new developments in the study of OCD and OC spectrum disorders. One or more scientific meetings will be held annually for ICOCS members and other interested clinicians and researchers.

The ICOCS also intends to increase public health awareness in regard to OCD and OC spectrum disorders with the hope of improving diagnosis and encouraging better deployment of resources for assessment and treatment. We shall be prepared to offer advice to legislative bodies and governmental agencies and cooperate on national and international treatment guidelines.
