Hi. I've just watched it. There were few positive bits explaining there are therapies and always things you can do. It was a sympathetic portrayal of the young people with ocd, and their families. It definitely highlights this condition without mocking it as channel 4 like to do. I thought it was a good documentary for spreading awareness.

I haven't watched it yet, but I am curious if it offered any alternatives to CBT? I have had terrible OCD most of my life and tried several CBT blocks and nothing has ever helped :-(
