Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety related condition which can be very disabling and difficult to understand and cope with. Symptoms can present in a variety of ways from performing repetitive rituals, impulses, irrational doubts and having unwanted obsessional thoughts.

Managing with a young person struggling with OCD can be trying and frustrating as by nature it is not based on rational thought.  Because the symptoms can vary so widely, it is not always easy to recognise and treat which can make it hard to fully grasp how best to help your loved one.

If you are caring for a young person with OCD help and support can be found through your GP.
