Company Description

NOCD is an award-winning digital health company focused on identifying people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and managing them using evidence-based treatment. Although OCD affects over 181 million people globally, is ranked by the W.H.O as a top 10 most disabling condition, and costs 3X more to treat than depression, over 90% of the OCD population isn’t able to access effective care due to stigma and misdiagnosis. As a result, OCD patients often go untreated and suffer in silence, which is why it’s nicknamed "the secret illness.”

NOCD’s solving this global problem by identifying OCD patients online and managing them using our network of OCD-trained licensed mental health providers. Inside NOCD, members can access a licensed mental health professional with specialty training in OCD, available to offer online diagnostic interviews, video-based teletherapy sessions, and message-based support. In between each session, members can access data-science moderated support communities and tech-enabled therapeutic tools, to ensure they have constant support whenever their provider isn’t around. In an integrated model using our app, researchers at Columbia Medical Center found it to be effective in reducing symptoms of OCD.

Today, NOCD manages the largest community of OCD patients in the world, and we have been financially supported by 7wire Ventures, Health Enterprise Partners, Chicago Ventures Meridian Street Capital, and Hyde Park Angels. We’re changing the world, and we need other like-minded individuals to make it happen.
