Three college students with OCD and a psychiatrist and psychologist who work in student mental health will: examine challenges faced by students with OCD including transitioning to college, perfectionism, study skills, and stigma; discuss strategies for managing these issues, including collaborating with school administrators and Disability Resources; and discuss accessing treatment in a college setting. This panel will be useful to students in various settings, including undergraduate/graduate programs and community, regional, state, and private colleges/universities.
