Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in Kids and Teens


Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a serious mental health condition that often goes undiagnosed in children for years. Many kids suffer in silence because they can’t always control their thoughts and behaviors. If OCD develops while a child is in elementary school, they will do a lot to conceal their rituals so no one discovers their secret.

    Thank you for bringing the issue of obsessive-compulsive disorder to the forefront. The resources you suggest are wonderful and The IOCDF (International OCD Foundation) website is also a comprehensive resource for OCD.
    My son suffered from OCD so severe he could not even eat. He has since recovered and is living life to the fullest. I talk about our journey and anything and everything to do with OCD on my website. There is so much hope for all those who suffer from OCD, no matter how severe, as it is absolutely treatable. Exposure Response Prevention Therapy is the frontline treatment for the disorder.
