The OCD Action Forum is a wonderful community of people providing support to one another, so no one has to feel alone with their battle against OCD.
As this is a peer support Forum, people are welcome to share their opinions freely, and the OCD Action Moderators will only step in when necessary.
Please note, opinions shared on the Forum about treatment methods for OCD and related disorders are personal and do not necessarily reflect the NICE Guidance recommended treatments for OCD.
OCD Action clearly states on this website that the only recommended treatments for OCD, as stated in the NICE Guidelines, are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which should include Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) techniques, and medication.
A diagnosis of any mental health condition and subsequent treatment can only be provided by a medical professional, and not through online support Forums.
If you need further information about accessing a diagnosis or treatment, please visit our information pages, or get in touch with the OCD Action Helpline: 0845 390 6232, .
