Given the stigma surrounding the disorder and the dearth of community OCD resources, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder can be a very isolating condition, but it is important for individuals with OCD and their families to know that they are not alone and that there is hope for a better future.
OCD Kids Sacramento is a free support group for kids 18 and under and their families living in and around Sacramento that was founded with the intention of creating a strong support network for kids and teens suffering from OCD in Sacramento and providing families with valuable guidance regarding treatment options. This group is assisted by Susan Haverty, a therapist specializing in the treatment of OCD.
The group's goals include:
1. Providing a source of hope and support to kids and teens in the Sacramento area with OCD
2. Learning about treatment options from health professionals and OCD therapists
3. Working towards the common goal of overcoming OCD
4. Ultimately spreading awareness of OCD throughout the community
