Ok, now that we’ve got your attention, we’d like to make our quarterly pitch for volunteers. Since we get solittle response to these requests, we thought that maybe we would ask to see if people might help us out withvery specific things.
We need people to deliver our quarterly newsletters to specific facilities in your area. Counseling centersand mental health clinics would be the first choice, of course, but also hospitals, libraries, multi- physicianpractices, etc. The idea is for you to make yourself known to an individual or individuals at these facilities,speak to them for a minute about NJ-OCF, and ask them to make the newsletters available to the profession-als who work there, and/or to the public who frequent their facility. Just contact Ina, and we will send you abunch of newsletters, then just let us know the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the facilitieswhere you left the newsletters. Even if you go to just 2-3 facilities, it would help us get the news out aboutNJ-OCF. Thanks! DON’T MISS

If you look at the back of this Newsletter, you will see that there is only a small handfull of support groups for OCD aroundthe state. It is one of the goals of NJAOCF to help create more of these groups. We at NJAOCF recieve at least a couple ofphone calls every month asking for support groups in areas of New Jersey where there are none. Northern counties andsouthern counties are especially devoid of groups.
If you are interested in having a group in your area, we can help. Here's how: 1)If you want to have a group, you need to find a place to meet. Local churches, synagogues, libraries, high schools, hospi-tals, and community mental health centers are good places to find free rooms. If you say you will be working with the NJAffiliate of the OC Foundation, it might also give you some "clout." 2)Determine the day and time- this will in part be determined by room space availability- no more than twice a month isneeded, and once a month is often a good place to start. An hour and 15 minutes or an hour and a half is usually the length. 3) Contact us. Call Ina Spero at 732- 828-0099. We can put your name and contact number on our website and in ourNewsletter. We will announce the formation of your group at our quarterly meetings. We will help to put out the word.
You can also do your part by letting local mental health professionals and facilities know about the group (sometimes thismeans going door to door with a flyer). Decide whether this is a group only for adults, only for sufferers, or open to every-body- we reccomend the latter- friends, family, and children with OCD. 4) Once you have a minimum number of people- 5 is enough to get started, let us know. We will give you some guidelinesabout how to run the group, provide you with handouts that you can give to members of the group, and answer questionsthat you may have regarding the mechanics of how to facilitate group discussion.- Don't worry if you've never done any-thing like this before. We will "hold your hand" in the early phases of the group until you feel more comfortable. WE AREHERE TO HELP! 5)If you have any questions of a clinical nature regarding running or forming a group, you can phone Dr. Allen Weg at 732-329-1378. OCD SUPPORT GROUP

above, Dr. Newman went over manyother medications and how they mightbe used to help treat OCD. She discussed how Atypical Antipsychotics (named so because, compared to moretraditional antipsychotics likeThorazine, Mellaril, and Trilafon, atypical antipsychotics have less sideeffects), such as Zyprexia , Seroquil,and Risperdol, may often be prescribedas part of the medication regime forOCD treatment. She also spoke atlength about Mood Stabilizer medica-tions, such as Lithium, Tergratol,Trilaptow, Topomax, Limictol, and andValproic Acid, which are sometimesused to help potentiate, or increase theeffectiveness, of the SSRI medications.
