Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is often viewed as a minor annoyance, or even something useful. But OCD is a serious mental health issue that traps 1 in 200 kids in a vicious cycle of worries and rituals. Parents, siblings and loved ones are also impacted as OCD behaviors and fears entrap and divide even the closest families.
To uncover what OCD is, and what it isn’t, UNSTUCK: an OCD kids movie focuses on an unlikely group of experts: kids. It avoids sensationalizing compulsions and obsessions and instead reveals the complexity of a disorder that affects both the brain and behavior. As these six resilient young people roadmap their process of recovery, the film inspires viewers to believe it is possible to face your worst fears.
“Essential viewing for any family fighting OCD and anyone wanting to understand it. This film is full of amazing speakers who explained what OCD is and how it can be beaten better than any mental health expert I’ve heard.”
