To the recently diagnosed

A video offering hope and inspiration

During our online conference last year, we hosted a meeting with some of our young ambassadors. The meeting was called ‘to the recently diagnosed’ and consisted of a selection of our young ambassadors giving their best advice and top tips to other young people who have recently been diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. We decided to create a similar video, except this time we recorded it so those who could not attend the conference were able to access something similar on our website.

Although this video has been created by young people, for other young people, we feel that it might be helpful to anyone of any age. If you have any questions based on anything discussed during this video, please contact

We hope you enjoy the video!

Young Ambassadors Amrita, Erin, Millie-Grace, Molly and Rachel give their best advice to the newly diagnosed.
