OCD in the Media

For many of us, initial awareness of our illness came through coverage of OCD in the media. This forums provides you with the opportunity to provide constructive feedback on media coverage of our illness, but also an opportunity for you to register your interest in working with OCD-UK to further advance awareness of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Members of the media: Please seek permission from OCD-UK before posting.
