Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder – one of a group of medical disorders which affects the thoughts, behaviour, emotions and sensations. Collectively, these disorders are among the most common of mental health problems. It is estimated that 1 in 10 people suffers from an anxiety disorder sometime in their life.
While a complete cure for OCD is rare, specialized treatment can bring many people long-term relief from their symptoms. Education is the first important step in removing the social stigma and lack of knowledge which keep people from looking for medical and other professional help.
