Collection: This is Mandy
This is Mandy
By Mandy Kay
An OCD awareness book for children
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder that affects millions of people of all ages. Unfortunately, it is often kept a secret - and that's true in the case of young Mandy, too.
Mandy's OCD affects her life at home and school, as she spends so much time on her compulsions and obsessions: washing her hands, brushing her hair, checking locks, re-writing her classwork - over and over and over. But Mandy comes to realize that OCD isn't shameful, and it doesn't have to be hidden. Instead, speaking up helps her to feel like herself again.
