Obsessive Compulsive and Related Disorders

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a disorder where a person develops intrusive thoughts, images or impulses (e.g. obsessions), usually alongside associated compulsive behaviours. An individual with OCD usually feels an overwhelming need to reduce their anxiety, and therefore engages in compensatory compulsive mental acts or behaviour(s). A compulsion is a behaviour that a person feels compelled to act upon or to engage in, to reduce or relieve the distress their obsessive thoughts are causing them. OCD is a treatable disorder that can affect both males and females of all ages.
