Obsessive Compulsive Disorder sign now

This petition outlines the need for more to be done for the suffers of OCD, although I myself am not a sufferer, I have been with the most wonderful person, who unfortuneately suffers heavily with OCD. I know that no one can understand what it's like without actually suffering, but it feels like it's been brushed under the carpet & left to be an everyday part of peoples lives. Recently it has been found that a genetic link could be the cause of most forms of OCD, but how long did it take to get to that point. I feel that more support for OCD sufferers & their families is required. Only one OCD centre exists in the whole country, Northern Ireland has very minimal facilities as with Scotland & Wales, where only the very basic services are provided & no specialist treatment can be given unless they make an expensive trip to London's OCD centre. This is an imbalance, something that is so widespread & yet so difficult to treat. I call on behalf of the undersigned for more funds to be made available for sufferers of OCD & it varients, so that specialist treatment can be for everyone & not just the few. I also call for more funds to made available to help research inovative procedures in helping with OCD, into the aspects of both safety & their effectivness on the condition. The longer things go on as they are the more OCD sufferers will start to take their own lives & I for one will not stand by while there is a possibility something can be done for them.
Please take note of this petition & instead of fighting wars, use it for those that need it most.

Thank you for your time, & I hope you have it in you to see that this is an important issue that needs to be resolved, not just by the charities but the by the Goverments of this world. Thank-you.
