Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: An Information Guide

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.
