OCD? Not Me!

The OCD? Not Me! program is a online treatment program for young people aged 12-18 with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It has been developed by researchers from Curtin University and is based on face-to-face treatment for OCD.

The OCD? Not Me! program involves eight stages, designed to be undertaken over eight weeks, and provides young people with information, tips, activities, and support to help them to overcome the symptoms of OCD. The program also provides support for parents and caregivers, with weekly information and tips to help them manage their child’s OCD and support them through the program. Young people and their parents can use the online Treatment Provider Database on the OCD? Not Me! website to search for alternative psychological services in their area. The OCD? Not Me! program is currently under trial as part of a Curtin University research project. Eligible participants in the program are asked to complete a series of assessments before and after the program to help evaluate its effectiveness.
