Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Self Assessment

iTherapy is pleased to offer this Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) self-test as a way for you to gain a better understanding of the symptoms or issues that are concerning you. This self-test is designed as a guide only. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of mental illness that triggers repeated unwanted thoughts that, in turn, causes anxiety, fear and worry. Those thoughts then cause uncontrolled, repetitive and often ritualized behaviors designed to reduce the associated anxiety. People with OCD usually realize their obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors are irrational but they are unable to stop.
