Alberta OCD Events

Ice Cream Walk & Park Hangout

Edmonton, Alberta

Meet'n Greet others who live with OCD for a fun social, welcoming Ice Cream Walk at 6:30pm on Thursday July 23rd at Kind Ice Cream (9551 76 Ave NW, Edm). From there, we will walk to Ritchie Park to hangout. Bring a blanket, frisbee, bug spray and hand sanitizer. Please dress for the weather, or in layers. 

 

Being able to socialize with others who also live with OCD reduces the negative shame we may experience from our unwanted intrusive thoughts. Shame may hold us back from sharing and healing from OCD. When you realize you share common OCD obsessions and compulsions with others, you realize you are not so different after all! A burden is lifted. (Must have at least 5 registered to host event.)

 

Please be sure to practice physical distancing and good hand hygiene. Masks are encouraged but not required as per AHS. 

Ice Cream Walk Sign-Up

Must be an aocdf member to register for events. Memberships are free. Must be an Alberta resident.
