      Hi: if I talk to my GP about my son’s OCD and violent intrusive thoughts will that stay confidential or will he have to report him to any gov etc departments as being dangerous? I want to support him, not get him in trouble..

        It SHOULD stay with the GP.

        I would imagine that all reputable doctors should know what constitutes ocd, and there is no reason to report someone with ocd to any state agency.

          Hi

          We want you to know that you can also contact the OCD Action Helpline and Email Service 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 their family members too). Most volunteers have personal experience of OCD; all understand OCD and how it can impact a family’s life.

          Contact our Helpline by:

          • phone: 0300 636 5478 (this is a UK number).
          • email: support@ocdaction.org.uk

          You can also find out about support groups on our website – these are open to people with OCD and some involve family members too. They offer a safe place where you can talk openly about OCD and support and encourage other people too. Our information about UK-based groups can be found here:

          If you don’t live in the UK, you can 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.

          Regards,
