OCD Youth aims to increase awareness and access to support for anyone under 25 affected by OCD.
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. There are nine of us in total, all with different roles and responsibilities.
