OCD And Me : Real Life Child Mental Health Experiences

In this film Olivia gives an honest and detailed account of her personal experience of the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) which she had since the age of eight but wasn’t diagnosed till she was 15.  It is an eye opener and should be watched by everyone who wants to understand what a person with OCD constantly goes through.

People may think that OCD is all about washing, checking, cleaning. These Repetitive Behaviours that we can see, are called Compulsions or Rituals. But what people cannot see are the Intrusive Thoughts which are called Obsessions. They are like a bully in the person’s head that keeps nagging that harm is going to come to them or to their loved ones if they do not complete the compulsions.

Nip in the Bud strongly believes that early intervention and support for children ensures far better outcomes.
