Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a serious anxiety-related condition which affects as many as three in a hundred people – from young children to older adults – regardless of gender and social or cultural background. Sufferers often go undiagnosed for many years, because of the lack of understanding surrounding the condition, as well as the intense feelings of embarrassment, guilt and shame that a sufferer may experience.

The illness can have a devastating effect on work, social life and interpersonal relationships. The World Health Organisation (WHO) ranks OCD as the tenth most disabling illness of any kind, in terms of lost earnings and diminished quality of life.

OCD: The Essential Guide is concise and written in plain English. It will help you understand and take control of this debilitating condition - whether you are a sufferer or a carer.
