Something that I often see in these students and other young adults is a pattern of self-injury.

OCD: what it is and what it isn’t

ocd_dummies_book_148

“I’m so OCD!” is a phrase we may use from time to time when describing the fact we must have our closet clean, the crooked picture on the wall bothers us, or when the desk drawer has to be organized in a particular way. However, OCD stands for obsessive compulsive disorder and is often a misused term in daily conversation . OCD can be a very debilitating mental health condition and when left untreated it can be devastating for a patient and their families. OCD symptoms can be made worse in times of stress and is often diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood. Stressful transitions in college can also exacerbated symptoms of college students suffering from OCD. Read my latest article in The Hullabaloo to find out what OCD is, and what it isn’t!
