Ds 6yo, has been showing signs of OCD which has dramatically effected his weight,he is certain his food/drink stuffs are contaminated. GP said if ds were to lose anymore weight,he would be very concerned.
There are a few other behaviours which myself and Dh would like to talk about also.

Gp referred him 3 weeks ago and we have recieved an appointment with CAMHS for this week,what happens in the first appointment?

Feeling quite nervous about it all(exhausted too).

They should take full developmental history from birth to date, shold ask you about your concerns and should observe your child.
