OCD in Children

A child with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is likely to experience both intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviours (compulsions). Although many children can experience some of these symptoms at some time in their lives, they are normally a sign of OCD when they start to interfere with normal daily activities.

This film explains how to identify and help a child showing the symptoms of OCD. Also download and print out our fact sheet on OCD in children.
