    We’re so sorry that you’re going through such a difficult time now and we’d like to help.

    We’re concerned that you say: “…Today I nearly hurt myself.” If you ever feel like harming yourself or that your life isn’t worth living, you can call the Samaritans, who are always there to help.

    The Samaritans have a free, confidential listening service for people in distress, open 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Their volunteers are not professional counsellors but will listen and never judge you. Contact the Samaritans by:

    • phone 116 123
    • email:

    If you’d like to talk to (or email) our OCD Action Helpline they may be able to provide you with information about your rights as a patient. Or you can just talk to them about what you’re going through.

    Our Helpline provides confidential information and support for people with OCD. Most volunteers have personal experience of OCD; all understand how it can impact your entire life. Contact our Helpline by:

    Also you can look at the Resources page on our website: read about treatment from the NHS, your rights as a patient and how you can self-advocate to get the treatment you deserve:

    Just please remember you’re never alone; our forum members and OCD Action are here to support you.
