Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Affecting approximately 1 or 2 out of 100 individuals (National Institute of Mental Health), OCD consists of obsessions (thoughts, images, impulses, ideas, doubts) and compulsions (actions or thoughts aimed at neutralizing the obsessions). Obsessions can be focused on any subject matter, but they are different from worries in that they are more excessive and tend to be inconsistent with the individual’s character or values. Compulsions are often behaviours (e.g. washing/cleaning, checking, ordering, repeating an action etc.) but can also be thoughts (e.g. mental checking, reviewing memories, reassurance seeking, distracting/blocking, counting etc.)

Obsessive-compulsive related disorders

Some behavioural problems are similar to OCD, yet also quite distinct. Careful assessment is important determine the best treatment plan. It is not unusual to have a diagnosis of OCD and one of these other disorders related to OCD.
