Objectives: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) often starts in childhood and adolescence and can be a chronic disorder with high persistence rates. The prevalence of OCD in this group is between 0.5-4%. It may occur in children as young as 6-7 years of age. The aim of the present study is to explore suggestive OCD in adolescents in a public high school and factors related with suggestive OCD.
