Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that can cause significant distress and impairment in an individual's daily life. It is a type of anxiety disorder that is characterized by persistent, unwanted, and intrusive thoughts, images, or impulses (obsessions) that can cause anxiety, guilt, or shame. In response to these obsessions, individuals may perform repetitive, ritualistic behaviours or mental acts (compulsions) to reduce their anxiety or prevent harm.

OCD can manifest in a variety of ways and can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity. It is a chronic condition that can be debilitating, causing significant distress and interfering with daily functioning, social relationships, and work performance.

Examples of common obsessions may include fears of contamination, doubts about safety, and unwanted aggressive or sexual thoughts. Common compulsions may include excessive cleaning or handwashing, checking, repeating, or arranging items in a specific way.

It is important to note that not everyone with OCD has visible compulsions. Some individuals may experience only obsessive thoughts or mental rituals, which can be just as distressing and time-consuming.

At our hospital, we understand the complexity of OCD and its impact on individuals' lives. Our team of experienced psychiatrists, psychologists and mental health professionals are dedicated to providing comprehensive and personalized care to help individuals manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

Treatment for OCD may include medication, therapy, or a combination of both. Therapy, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), can also be effective in helping individuals learn coping skills to manage their symptoms.

If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of OCD, it is important to seek help from a qualified mental health professional. Our hospital and our team are committed to providing compassionate, effective care for individuals living with mental health conditions, including OCD.
