"I get these urges and I can't stop them" - The strange world of obsessions.

Once more with feeling, the Care-Ring Voice Network has organized a tele-learning session on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Psychologist Kieron O'Connor will speak about this condition that subjects the sufferer to thoughts and behaviours that appear to be out of control. OCD can be debilitating. In order to do something about it, you first need to understand the condition, where it comes from and how it can be conquered, says O'Connor.

AMI Quebec (Action on Mental Illness) hosts this presentation on Wednesday, February 20, at 7 p.m. You can hear it from your home either by telephone or online. The session is confidential, but participants must register as members of the Care-Ring Voice Network at

Once you've confirmed your registration for the session, you receive an email detailing how and when you can access it. Registration is free. For information call 1-866-396-2433, email, or visit

Registrants will receive the phone number that will permit them to participate.

Another option is to listen to the tele-learning session with a group at Mental Health Estrie in Lennoxville. For more information, contact Mental Health Estrie at 819-565-3777, or
