Your right to choose your mental health service provider

Extension of Choice to People Accessing Mental Health Services

In January of this year Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister, launched the Government’s mental health strategy document, “Closing the Gap”. This document stated that from April 2014 adults with mental health problems will have the legal right -

‘to choose which provider and consultant or mental health professional will be in charge of their care when they attend their first outpatient appointment’.

Campaign Update

In December 2013, representatives from the Charity met with Norman Lamb MP, the Minister for Care and Support to talk about our campaign for better access to quality treatment for OCD. This was a positive meeting with the Minister agreeing that more needs to be done to ensure that people with OCD have the information that they need and, where appropriate, are referred to specialist treatment. 

Week of Action 17th - 23rd Feb 2014

OCD Action launched our first OCD Awareness Week in 2010 and since then, with the help of our volunteers, we have done a huge amount to raise the profile of OCD and make more people aware of the disorder. This year we are taking on a new challenge, because awareness is not enough. We want people to take action.

OCD Week of Action 17th -23rd Feb is our national campaign to inspire people to get the help they need, influence change and fight misconceptions.
