OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)
Questions to help identify OCD

If the answer is “YES”!! then you need treatment

Obsessions consist of intrusive, recurrent images, urges, or thoughts that are perceived as distressing and frequently frightening. They produce shame, fear and anxiety in the sufferer .

Compulsions are repetitive behaviours, thoughts or rituals that the person feels compelled to perform, often to reduce the distress caused by the obsession.

Many people with OCD experience intense fears of something terrible happening to themselves or others, have constant doubts about their behaviour, and frequently seek reassurance from others.

Common Types of OCD

Age of Onset -OCD can start at any time from preschool to adulthood. Although OCD does occur at earlier ages, there are generally two age ranges when OCD first appears: Between ages 10 and 12 and between the late teens and early adulthood.
