Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a severe and debilitating anxiety disorder that affects one person in 40. It affects not only how people feel or think, but also how they behave. OCD symptoms—such as compulsive hoarding or handwashing—often evoke uncomfortable emotions in family and friends.

This guide discusses:

what OCD is and what causes it
treatments, including both cognitive and behavioural therapy and medication
recovery and relapse prevention
family involvement
The guide is a thorough and helpful introduction for people with OCD, their family and friends.

This guide was fully updated and revised in 2016.
