Welcome to Ask Pat,

It sounds like you are interested in getting more information about OCD.
OCD stands for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and is commonly linked with anxiety.

If you feel OCD is impacting your life, whether you or someone else is experiencing the symptoms, then you have the right to get support and to tell a trusted adult about what is going on for you.

There is also support and information on the HSE website, where you can find information about many issues related to mental health and about other support services.

Don’t forget, you can always contact Childline on 1800 66 66 66 to talk about what is going on for you. We are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our text service, 50101 and webchat service, through, are available from 10am to 4 am every day.
While we do not tell you what to do here at Childline, we are here to listen and support and to help you to explore the options that are available to you in your life, to help you in a way that suits you.

Take care.
