CAMH and the Frederick W. Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre, at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, are excited to announce
the launch of ECHO Ontario Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). ECHO Ontario OCD aims to help
primary and community care providers build capacity in the treatment of OCD. The project works to empower primary care providers
to use evidence-based best practices to reduce the need for specialist visits, improving the quality of care for patients seeking
treatment for OCD and related disorders in Ontario’s primary care settings.


ECHO Ontario OCD developed this curriculum based on the analysis of multiple needs assessments, conducted with provincial primary care providers.
