This survey was developed by OCD Ottawa (a peer-based support network).

We seek to build a picture of the services accessed by people living with OCD, from
the perspective of those in a supportive or care-giving position (parents, partners, other family members, friends).  

Information collected will be used by OCD Ottawa to advocate for adequate treatment and services for individuals with OCD, and their family members/supporters.  Your feedback will also help to identify areas for education and outreach. 

A summary of the survey results will be made available on the OCD Ottawa website. 

Please note: A separate survey is available for people living with OCD. The link can be found at

For resources and support:
International OCD Foundation (a key resource is What You Need to Know About OCD)
Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) - Ottawa
E-Mental Health
This survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Survey Monkey does not collect identifying information such as your email address, or IP address. Therefore, your responses will remain anonymous.
