OCD & Me  

1x52' 


The World Health Organisation lists OCD as one of the 10 most debilitating illnesses on the planet.

OCD & Me gives us a greater understanding of this secretive and often misunderstood condition.

Most people have heard of OCD but what exactly is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? It affects between 2-3% of the Irish population and presents itself in many unusual guises. People are often surprised to learn that OCD goes far beyond the common perception of excessive hand washing or the repetitive checking of light switches.

OCD is an extreme anxiety-related condition where a person experiences
frequent, intrusive and unwelcome obsessive thoughts, often followed by
repetitive compulsions, impulses or urges.

In an attempt to get an understanding of this distressing mental illness this
documentary features experts in the field and spends time with some people who have agreed to come forward and talk about their OCD.
