My teenager has OCD

My 15 yr. old has OCD. SHe has the one that washes her hands at least 50 times a day and won't touch. Just wondering if anyone has the same problem with their teen? If so I need some answers and help to help her. She is already under a Dr.'s care.

  • I don't have a teen with OCD, but I DO have OCD, and I had it as a teenager. Really the only thing you can do is support her and help her in her treatment. Is she on medication or is she in behavioural therapy? Behavioural therapy tends to have a more positive outcome in getting over OCD habits.
