Presentation subject

We know that OCD has an impact on the whole family, including other siblings that live at home. In this presentation, we will be thinking about their experiences of having a brother or sister with OCD. We will consider the impact it may have on their lives and ways that they can be supported with their own needs and challenges. Siblings would be really welcome to attend, as we share stories from other young people in a similar situation.

We know that right now we are all living through difficult times financially, and it’s for that reason we have chosen to make our conference free access this year. Whilst the conference is free access, the charity does still have to pay Zoom and Vimeo license fees which power our online conference, so if you are in a position to make a donation of any amount, we would be incredibly grateful. It is only through donations, and the participation of our supporters fundraising activities that OCD-UK can survive, so we remain incredibly grateful for your consideration.
