This study is looking for patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) to participate in a study using transcranial magnetic stimulation. The study may help researchers develop ways to effectively treat OCD noninvasively. Participants will be evaluated by a licensed psychiatrist and qualified study coordinator.
There is no cost to participate and participants will be compensated.
A nonprofit lounge primarily focused on you or your loved ones or anyone dealing with or having dealt with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). A group with arms wide open to those even stalled by fears and anxiety in general and looking to hop over onto their field of dreams. We also welcome anyone with a spark of desire to help, but with some experience in the anxiety arena.
