Teen Success Panel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Teens struggling with OCD can face many difficulties socially, academically, and in their own families. Further, many teens or their families may be skeptical about taking the steps to get treatment for OCD, often hoping that it will just go away or that it can be “grown out of.” The teens on this panel will describe what it was like to discover they have OCD, how they got treatment for it, and what successes they have had as well as struggles they continue to face. So, bring your questions if you are a teen or a family member of a teen to hear encouraging words and advice on how to fight your OCD!
