The coronavirus pandemic for those with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) can be particularly challenging

For those with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), the coronavirus pandemic can be particularly challenging. But the psychological impact goes further. Our worries during the pandemic can drive us to ‘safety behaviours’ that we might struggle to give up when they are no longer needed. Some may struggle later to leave lockdown, psychologically. Clinical Lead for the National OCD Service, Tracey Taylor, shares insights and advice for those trying to overcome OCD at this time, and her recommendations on how to live well after lockdown.
