Support group for parents of children with OCD

My nine year old daughter has OCD, and I'd love to connect with other parents.  Are there any support groups in the East Bay for parents of children with OCD (or high anxiety)?  Thank you!

I’d be happy to talk with you. Email me. 

Hi, I'm sorry that you're dealing with this, I wish you and your family all the best. Here's some info that I've come upon which might be of help to you.

All the best.

christrondsen [at] gatewayocd.com  Co-coordinator of OCD So Cal. They have meetings once a month (virtually) and they have been exceptionally helpful to me. The meetings are facilitated, speakers, Q&A - really good. I don't know if there's a Northern CA counterpart - I haven't looked b/c this group is so helpful.

They shared info about the Annual OCD So Cal Conterence too, which was great. (virtual too).

I also have a nine year old child with OCD, anxiety and likely some other challenges, and would love to connect with you! I believe you can click on my username and send me a message. I recently searched on this site for support groups and came across this link for a support group mentioned in an older post: https://groups.io/g/OCD-POTAYA. I haven't been granted access to the group yet so I can't really comment on it, but would be happy to share any other resources and support groups I come across.
