Caring for someone with OCD & Depression

Hi all,
Been a carer for about 2-3 years now, only recently getting ahold of all of the things legally and such.

Does anyone have any tips for caring for someone with depression and OCD? I feel like I don’t know enough even though I’ve done so much research. Most things are about how it affects a person, not how to help.

Essentially if anyone has any advice please let me know.

Thanks so much!

Hi Bug (I saw your other post), and welcome to the forum!

Not really sure what advice to give myself, but the NHS site has some ideas, and a link to another site where you can find out what other carers have done: How to help someone with depression - NHS

In the meantime, I’ve no doubt someone else will come along with a few ideas of their own.

Thank you so much! Turns out I was googling incorrectly hahah. I’ve managed to find a fair bit with the help from what you sent.

Happy to help!
