Animated educational OCD cartoons now on YouTube Kids

A group of UF researchers teamed up with an animation company, Tiny Docs, in 2020 to create two cartoon videos for children with anxiety and/or obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, and their families. The videos — Billy vs. Worry Monster and Billy Goes to School — were guided by data from a research study that identified themes that would be helpful for children and their parents to know before starting cognitive behavioral therapy.

Now YouTube Kids is promoting these videos in order to help see this information is getting to more people than ever before. Billie Goes Back to School is already over 20k views and counting.
