Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

The Mayo Clinic writes, “Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) features a pattern of unwanted thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions). These obsessions and compulsions interfere with daily activities and cause significant distress.” A child may have a different diagnosis but may also feature traits of OCD. These traits can present as obsessions, compulsions, or both.
