    Definitely need more effective treatments to become available to everyone with OCD.

    Also shorter waiting times. Waiting 9 months for some therapy that may or may not work or waiting 6 months just to change medication as a trial and error experiment that again may or may not work is too long.

    Not to mention, some of us are forced through 3 assessments before being told there's simply nothing they can offer at the moment!  :o  I'd like to hope I'm in the minority though lol...

    If you follow the link in the OP, you can leave your experiences of treatment in their current survey.  I've done it and hope plenty of other have as well!!  :)

    Survey is now closed, thanks to all who entered. :) 

    As part of Action Week, a short film about OCD was launched on Friday.  Called 'For Want of a Nail' and around 20 minutes long.  You can watch it here -
