Children who suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder now have a tool to help them cope.
Nearly 2–percent of the nation’s population suffer from the anxiety disorder. It causes you to have obsessions and thoughts you can’t rid of.
Debby Houston has specialized in treating the illness for more than 20 years. She wrote a therapeutic book to help children with OCD. “the best way to describe OCD is it’s like your brain become stuck…and you can’t move forward. That’s pretty miserable. And so obviously with this level of impairment you need to get some intervention,” Houston says.
She’ll host a presentation at Bryan East for all ages on September 11th from 7 to 8:30 pm.
Admission is free.
