    Thanks for coming to the forums to support your Mum; please don’t be discouraged as you haven’t had many replies yet. It may just be that forum users are taking time to consider how to reply.

    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 (and families and carers). 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:

    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:


    – 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”:

    And please remember that OCD Action is here to help and support you.

    Best wishes,
