What Helped My OCD: A 12-Year-Old Talks About Her Experience 

Having OCD is hard enough, but being a kid or teenager with OCD is even harder. Many children with OCD think they are the only ones suffering with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. They don’t realize that OCD in kids is much more common than they think! They struggle alone and many wonder how on earth they are supposed to beat OCD.

In my Ask the Child Therapist Interview Series, I will be interviewing kids and parents who have struggled and what they find helpful in their fight to beat OCD.

A 12-Year-Old talks about her OCD. She discusses what helped beat OCD and what didn’t.

This week I Interview Kiri, a 12-year-old girl who wants other kids to know they are not alone. She bravely shares her own story in an effort to dispel the stereotypes of OCD and let other kids with OCD know they are not alone.
