Sibling Support Group for Kids and Teens

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When your brother or sister has OCD you may grapple with many different issues. You may feel like nobody else knows what it's like to have OCD in their family. You may wonder how to support your sibling without getting overly involved. You may struggle with lots of mixed feelings, and sometimes you may just feel plain old lost in the shuffle. Come meet other kids and teens who have siblings with OCD as we share thoughts and feelings, and work to constructively problem-solve the unique issues that arise when you have a sibling with OCD.

I'm 9 years old and am a sibling of someone with OCD. I love horseback riding, swimming, singing, cooking and helping my sister with her exposures. I know how hard it is to be a sibling of someone with OCD, especially when your mom or dad is giving your sibling attention instead of you. I look forward to sharing our experiences.
