Center for Emotional Health- Cherry Hill and Princeton
The Center for Emotional Health offers free support groups for children, adolescents, and adults living with OCD and their support persons. 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 via secure video-conferencing. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Young Adults OCD Peer Support Group
This is an open casual semi-structured peer-led support group for young adults with OCD. The main purpose of this group is to help others gain insight from those who have had similar shared experiences, communicate resources, offer support, and also to just socialize and make new friends. According to the World Health Organization, “Peer support is generally understood to be a relationship of mutual support where people with similar life experiences offer each other support, especially as they move through difficult or challenging experiences.”
