New Research Study at UCSF

Participants needed

from San Francisco Bay Area

Dr. Carol Mathews at UCSF is starting a new treatment study for people with Hoarding Disorder.
This is a
comparison of Peer Facilitated Support Group and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for
Hoarding Disorder. 
Researchers at the University of California San Francisco and the Mental
Health Association of San Francisco are conducting this study to learn more about different
treatments for people with Hoarding Disorder.
Participants of this study will be asked to commit
to 16 group sessions, 2 hours in length, over the span of 20 weeks. Before and after receiving
the 20-week treatment, participants will complete surveys, diagnostic interviews, and cognitive
assessment at the Parnassus campus of UCSF. Payment for participation is $100.
 

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you are 18 years or older,
you have Hoarding Disorder, and have not received cognitive-behavioral treatment
for Hoarding Disorder in the last 12 months.
