Welcome to the OCD community of the wizarding world! Though never mentioned in the books, at least a few students at Hogwarts had OCD. We invite you to join us, to build community and face our fears together! First, we will make wands because wizards use wands to harness the power already within themselves. Then, volunteers will share fears they have dealt with in the past or are still fighting. As a group we will think of OCD as a boggart, finding ways to see OCD as silly and ourselves as in control. We will brainstorm possible exposures for the fears, and those willing will do them together.
