Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is the third most common mental disorder in Singapore. About 1 in 28 people living in Singapore will suffer from OCD in their lifetime.
OCD is commonly confused with perfectionism or fastidiousness. OCD is, in fact, a mental health condition that can cause much distress and serious disruption to one's life. People suffering from OCD may experience recurrent unwanted thoughts or impulses which cause significant anxiety and/or perform repetitive behaviours to suppress these thoughts or urges.
Fortunately, OCD is a treatable condition. With the appropriate professional help, people suffering from OCD can return to living productive and fulfilling lives.
What causes OCD? What are the signs and symptoms of OCD? What treatments are available for people suffering from OCD? Tune in to this talk to find out more.
