About the Series

OCD affects 1 in 50 people. Experts estimate that less than 10% of those suffering receive any treatment at all. Additionally, half of those living with obsessive-compulsive disorder are misdiagnosed with a different condition. Bridging this gap begins with education - and the education this series provides is right from a world-renowned OCD expert.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Yip has a unique relationship with OCD. Not only is she the go-to expert on the subject, but she’s also fought her own battles with the disorder. In addition to her private practice, she runs the Renewed Freedom Center, which provides the most advanced treatments for OCD and anxiety disorders in the country.

In this series, Dr. Yip educates MedCircle viewers on the reality behind this heavily-misunderstood disorder. She breaks down the nuanced symptoms that make up an OCD diagnosis, how it manifests differently in children and adults, what treatment options are available, and what people should expect as they recover - both long-term and on a day-to-day basis. She wraps up the series with key ways that sufferers and supporters alike can thrive.

“I find [this information] incredibly helpful and beneficial. I have recommended it to many of my friends...It is surprising how limited treatment and resources are available when the number of people that have it or deal with it is so high. Learning about it is your best way to deal with it and I highly recommend this site.”
