How can I help a loved one with OCD Disorder?

If you have a loved one with OCD Disorder, it’s important to provide support and encourage them to seek professional treatment. You can also educate yourself about the disorder and avoid enabling compulsive behaviors or rituals, while also being patient and understanding of their struggles.

Can medication help treat OCD Disorder?
