OCD Youth

OCD Youth

Our mission is to help young people with OCD at school, university and work. Spread awareness about OCD and try to stop the stigma attached to OCD and other mental illnesses.


OCD Youth is run by young people with OCD, for young people with OCD. We organise trips and outings, run online meet-ups, take part in campaigning activities, manage a youth website and social media channels, write articles and awareness resources, produce videos and media, and much more.

This is a youth-led initiative, meaning that the Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) is at the heart of all these activities. The panel is made up of a group of volunteers under the age of 25 who have OCD themselves, and want to make a positive change for themselves and others like them.


Who is this aimed at?

OCD Youth aims to increase awareness and access to support for anyone under 25 affected by OCD.


Online Youth Support Group

Your chance to receive and offer support to other 16 to 20-year-olds who have/think they may have OCD.

The new group meets once a month on Skype, with young people turning their cameras off for privacy or dialling in on a normal telephone. The group is facilitated by trained volunteers Emily, Gary and Jennifer. A member of the Youth Panel will attend each month to signpost young people to our other services if necessary, and we all chat between meetings on a moderated Facebook group set up specifically for regular attendees of the online group.



We meet on the third Wednesday of every month at 7pm and anyone who is interested in joining is encouraged to contact us via email: and our Even Better Together team can provide more information on joining the group and help get you started.
