OCD is a long-term condition characterised by thoughts that make you feel anxious (obsessions) and behaviors you employ to reduce this anxiety (compulsions) and it is one of the most common mental health problems.

Anxiety-provoking thoughts can preoccupy the mind and will not disappear, despite the individual's best efforts not to think of them. These thoughts could centre on contamination by germs, or that someone will be harmed because of the sufferer's negligence.

Sufferers may see pictures in their mind of violent or sexual images which are completely out of character; however, importantly sufferers do not act upon these images. To help reduce the anxiety caused by these negative thoughts individuals may have rituals such as washing hands repeatedly, constant checking, and constantly asking for reassurance from others that everything is okay.

Consequently, OCD can disable the life of the individual to such a dramatic extent that depression can also be a problem, as well as cause damage to relationships both professionally and personally. OCD can be diagnosed if the obsessions and compulsions take up excessive amounts of time (approximately more than one hour), lead to significant distress and interfere with daily functioning in domestic life, study, work, social life and relationships.
