Description:

Bradley Hospital’s OCD Support Group for Parents is a mutual support group for parents, families, friends and others raising or caring for children and adolescents with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). The meetings offer a welcoming and safe environment for parents and families to receive and provide support and information, and typically include either formal or informal discussion on topics such as symptoms, medications, treatment options, parent and sibling relationships, social relationships, and school success, as well as the challenges and opportunities of raising a child with OCD. Professional overviews are followed by a Q&A session and parent discussion.
