Raising awareness about kids with OCD

I wish to raise awareness about children with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Its such a lonely experience when you are a child, so embarrassing and difficult to talk about. So you suffer in silence and feel terribly scared and guilty about it.

Matters are made worse by parents who are totally ignorant of the condition and will actually scold these poor kids, if they ever catch them acting oddly.

I KNOW FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WHAT THIS FEELS LIKE!!!

Right now i have started a page and am including some useful links that parents and children may find useful.

If anyone here has any tips and ideas to share with me, that would be great. Otherwise just please pass it on.

Love
