Carlsbad, Calif. — OCDTribe.com, a website offering an online support forum for people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), has announced that it has provided a secure online support platform for those living with the disorder.

Enabling people affected by OCD to connect with other members to share their experiences, the website offers members a reliable and secure online platform with interactive features.

People can easily become members of the tribe by completing a simple online application form. The members of this community can communicate with each other by writing blogs, sharing their pictures, participating in polls, events and games.

Commenting on the benefits of becoming a member of the online OCD Forum, says the OCDTribe.com founder Ryan FitzGerald, “The Internet is one of the most significant media used by billions of users throughout the world."

"By proving an online support forum, we have tried to give support to those living with OCD, which is a common behavioral disorder," says FitzGerald.

"Anyone across the world can easily become an active member of our website and take part in the interactive activities organized by other group members. By becoming members of our website those affected by the disorder can share their feelings and thoughts with other members of the community to feel connected and supported.”

The website is a popular OCD support destination, with sections such as Health Information, Gallery, Blogs, Forums, Events, Polls, Games and Media. The Health information section of the site includes Mental Health Articles and Alternative Medicine Articles.

Users can read about information related to OCD symptoms such as how it begins, what help is available, real stories from real people and why people get this disorder.

One of the most significant sections of this website is the “Find a Therapist"search box that enables the users to locate good therapists, counselors and psychologists in their area. Just by putting in their Area ZIP Code, users can locate profiles of counselors practicing in their vicinity.

“Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a serious medical condition that requires intense therapy sessions, and in some cases medications to get over," adds Fitzgerald. "It usually starts during adolescence and persists until the problem is treated properly. Good medical treatment along with love and support of family and friends can help those living with OCD to get over it."

"Our website contains special articles written on the treatment of this disorder," he adds. "In addition, there is a search box inter-connected with TherapyTribe.com, a leading online therapist directory containing profiles of numerous therapists.”
