Surveys 2017

OCD Ottawa is seeking to build a picture of the services and support accessed by both those living with OCD and those who support them. Below are surveys we have developed to aid in this process.  Your participation will help us build an evidence base of shortfalls in current treatment, support, and services, and assist in advocacy work to improve access to best practice treatment options, education, and outreach.

Feel free to share survey links widely.
