How Sensitive Is Your OCD Radar?



Are your eyes, brain and OCD radar sensitive enough to spot it?

OCD, which stands for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, is a mental health condition when a person has thoughts that are obsessive.

hat means that a person with OCD might have bad or unwanted thoughts that they can’t stop thinking about. They also might have compulsive behaviours. A compulsion is when somebody repeats actions or thoughts that help them stop feeling anxious. That could be something like turning lights on and off, checking windows are locked, washing hands. It could be doing these things in a certain way or a certain number of times.

OCD can be really distressing and interfere with day to day life but there is help and things can get better.


If you are the parent of a child or young person who you think might have OCD, it’s really important that they don’t feel embarrassed or worried about finding help. You can find help by going to your GP. They can chat everything through and can make a referral to a local psychological therapy service.
