      Hi: My daughter has been suffering with ocd thoughts and I want to know if this is normal OCD. She’s had compulsions and recently I think she acted on her thoughts. She says her mind told her to do something, and she felt like she acted on it. But why recently would she do this? Can ocd do that to you? Is that normal?

        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.
