Posted on behalf of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF), modified from full description of I ♥ Research Campaign here.
The International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) is a donor-supported nonprofit organization serving a broad community of individuals with OCD and related disorders, their family members and loved ones, and mental health professionals and researchers. This community is passionate that one day we will better understand OCD and how to treat it more effectively, with the eventual goal of finding a cure.
There is an enduring bond that unites this community, and that bond is research. Each year, the International OCD Foundation awards grants to the most promising research focused on OCD and related disorders. This is only possible because of the generosity of our donors: people like you. Since 1986, we have seen tremendous progress in how OCD is diagnosed and treated thanks to research, and we are proud to say that important contributions have been made by recipients of the IOCDF Research Grant Fund. Last year we launched our I ♥ Research Campaign to help grow the IOCDF Research Grant Fund and this year we look to build on that success. We want you to tell us why you love research, and to support our I ♥ Research Campaign by helping us increase the amount of research we can fund. A donation to the I ♥ Research Campaign is investing in hope for those living with OCD — hope that one day we will know what causes OCD as well as the best way to deliver treatment, so that lives are interrupted as little as possible.
