Reply To: OCD and fears
Forum moderators here:
Thanks for posting on the forums; we understand why you’re having a difficult time coping with the voices you think you hear. We’re sorry you haven’t had many replies yet. Please don’t take this personally or ever think you’re alone.
As you seem to have questions about your mental that may not be related to OCD, we strongly advise you to see your GP, family doctor or another medical professional. Forum users can share their mental health experiences with you but are not medically trained and can’t give you advice about any medical conditions, such as Schizophrenia.
And please remember that you can also contact the OCD Action Help and Information Line to talk to or email someone who understands OCD.
Our Helpline volunteers provide confidential and unbiased help, information and support for people with OCD (or who think they may have OCD). Most volunteers have personal experience of OCD and all understand how it can impact your entire life. Contact our Helpline by:
- phone: 0300 636 5478 (UK number).
- email: email@example.com
You can also find out about support groups on our website. These offer a safe place where you can talk openly about OCD and support other people too. Our information about UK-based groups can be found here:
- Local independent support groups: https://ocdaction.org.uk/i-need-support/local-support/
- OCD Action Skype/Phone/Zoom support groups: https://ocdaction.org.uk/i-need-support/ocd-action-skype-phone-zoom-support-groups/
If you don’t live in the UK, look for groups near you on the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) website. Look in the section “Find Help” and then under “Listing Types”, choose “Support Groups”: https://iocdf.org/
And please remember that you’re never alone – OCD Action is always here to help and support you.
