About Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by time-consuming or distressing recurrent, intrusive thoughts or urges that are difficult or impossible to suppress. People with OCD feel driven to perform repetitive behaviors or mental acts to relieve their thoughts or urges, even if they know there is no realistic connection between the two. If you or someone you know struggles with OCD, please reach out to a service below.
