Center for Emotional Health- Cherry Hill and Princeton

The Center for Emotional Health offers two free support groups for children, adolescents, and adults living with OCD. Family members are also welcome. These therapist-facilitated groups are not therapy groups, but rather a venue to share experiences and connect with others affected by OCD. Meetings are held at CEH-Cherry Hill one Saturday per month and at CEH-Princeton one weekday evening per month. The groups are open to all, whether or not they receive clinical services from CEH. If interested, please contact 856-220-9672 with inquiries.

New Trichotillomania Group Forming In Mercer CTY/Central NJ

Looking for women of all ages to participate in a self-led support group. I recently moved from the Boston area, where I was in a support group for fifteen years. The group was immeasurably helpful to me on many levels, and gave all members the rare and wonderful opportunity to help each other live with this challenging disorder. I can’t overestimate the benefits of peer support and the freedom to discuss personal issues with women who share them. Please contact me at mercertrich@yahoo.com.
