OCD OPEN DAY 2006

On Friday 30th March, 7 families attended a half-day event at the Maudsley OCD clinic. The purpose of the day was to give families a chance to meet with one another, learn more about OCD and share their experiences.

The children and young people were given the opportunity to play OCD monopoly (a modified version of the traditional game)and brainstorm ideas for the website. Meanwhile, parents had the opportunity to discuss some key OCD issues, including; “What consititutes good CBT?” and “Medication for OCD”.

Both the families and the staff involved found the event worthwhile and enjoyable. Feedback from the young people included the message that doing something fun had made it easier to talk about their OCD.

We hope to arrange bigger and better open days in the future with the help of the valuable feedback we received.
