6 Signs You May Have Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Without Knowing It
May 17, 2018 16:12
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is one of the most common mental disorders, yet so many people get it wrong. One recent example of the lack of awareness about the condition was a job ad one wedding venue posted on their Twitter account. The ad went: "Slightly OCD? Then we'd like to hear from you," implying the venue is looking for staff who are perfectionists and like to arrange everything in a perfect order. A backlash from those who actually have OCD ensued, and the venue issued an apology and changed the ad.
