Free resources to help people with OCD and their families and carers

We strongly believe in the power of education as the foundation for any recovery programme and so we will regularly post free resources to inform and educate you based upon our personal and professional experience of OCD.  There is now a great deal of information online about OCD so we will keep ours as clear and specific as we can with emphases on general and specific sub-types.  Please check back regularly as we will update the page and refresh with new features. We hope you find this helpful.....

Here's what to tell your child who has OCD:

  1. Everything is going to be OK. It may be tough at times but it will be OK

  2. You are not crazy or sick. You have a condition which can be managed
  3. No one is normal and you are as good as everyone else

  4. OCD is a long term condition but, with coping skills, it need not stop you doing anything you want to in life

  5. You will need to learn coping skills and keep practicing these

  6. Many successful people have OCD including business leaders, actors, musicians, singers, artists, etc. You are in good company

  7. OCD means that you may feel emotions more strongly than others - this is OK

  8. In order to manage your OCD you will need to learn how to tolerate discomfort (mainly emotional) and not try to get rid of it

  9. In order to manage your OCD you will need to make sure you work hard on doing tasks for yourself
  10. Working on your OCD will be really beneficial for your life in general

  11. We are here to support you (but not to do things for you!)

  12. Never give up on your OCD! You can do it

    ​We know this because we've done it.......
