Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a mental health disorder characterized by unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (compulsions). These obsessions and compulsions can interfere with daily activities and cause significant distress.
There are many different types, but some of the most common include:
Contamination Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Characterized by fears of contamination. People with this type of OCD may worry about germs, dirt, or other substances.
Checking Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Characterized by the need to check things repeatedly. People of this type may check locks, appliances, or other objects to ensure they are turned off or locked.
Hoarding Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Characterized by the excessive accumulation of possessions. People may have difficulty getting rid of even the most useless items.
There are several medications that can help to reduce symptoms.
Therapy can help people learn how to manage symptoms and cope with stressful situations.
Support groups can provide a safe place to share their experiences and connect with others who understand what they are going through.
