Who is this OCD test for?
This test is aimed at adults who believe they might be experiencing traits of OCD such as obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. Not everyone with OCD will have the exact same traits, which is why taking this test can help you to determine which signs you have and if you may require some support.
Why is it worth taking an online OCD test?
Although this quiz doesn’t count as a diagnosis, it helps you to understand which traits of OCD you experience. If you score highly on this quiz, you can show your results to a GP, so that they can arrange a formal diagnosis. Taking an online test can also help you to recognise which areas of life you may like support with.
How is OCD treated?
Psychological therapy is often used to help those with OCD. This type of therapy involves working with a psychologist to face the thoughts that cause you anxiety and neutralise them without the use of compulsive behaviours.
Alternatively, medicine can be used to help reduce anxiety and lessen symptoms of OCD. The usual medicines prescribed are SSRIs which are a type of antidepressant.
