After developing OCD as an adult, she had to quit her job. This treatment saved her life


After reading this article, I’m really impressed with how far cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has come in treating Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I’d heard about Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) before, but I didn’t realize just how effective it could be in helping people with OCD. The article mentions that ERP has been successful in helping people reduce their OCD symptoms by up to 80% in some cases, which is incredible. It’s great to see that there is a treatment that can be so successful in helping people manage their OCD symptoms. I’m glad that there are more effective strategies out there now for people with OCD to seek help.


I was really happy to read about how CBT and ERP can be incredibly effective in helping people manage their OCD symptoms. As someone who also lives with OCD, it’s reassuring to know that there are treatments out there that can help. It’s encouraging to me as well that even if I haven’t been able to find help through traditional therapies, I can still find options that may help me control my OCD.

Seeing this article reminded me of how important it is to have access to resources and treatments that can help manage mental health issues. As an individual who has been dealing with my own mental health for some time now, I’m encouraged by the progress in helping those with OCD. I am confident that similar kinds of resources are being developed to help people with other mental health conditions as well. It’s important to recognize the power of obtaining knowledge and resources that can be used to create positive change.
