What is obsessive compulsive disorder?
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterised by recurrent, intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviours (compulsions) that an individual feels driven to perform. The obsessions and compulsions are often time-consuming and cause significant distress, interfering with daily functioning and overall well-being.
Obsessions are unwanted, persistent thoughts, images, or impulses that cause anxiety or distress. Common obsessions in OCD include:
- Fear of contamination or germs.
- Unwanted thoughts about harm to oneself or others.
- Intrusive sexual or violent thoughts.
- Concerns about symmetry, order, or exactness.
- Fear of losing important items or making mistakes.
Compulsions are repetitive behaviours or mental acts that a person with OCD feels compelled to perform in response to an obsession. These actions are aimed at reducing anxiety or preventing a feared outcome. Common compulsions include:
- Excessive hand washing or cleaning.
- Repeatedly checking things, such as locks or appliances.
- Arranging items in a specific order or pattern.
- Counting or repeating words or phrases.
- Seeking reassurance from others.
The exact cause of OCD is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, neurobiological, and environmental factors.
