The purpose of this study is to obtain a better understanding of the types of obsessions individuals with OCD experience. While the way in which OCD can present for an individual and across individuals often varies greatly, social media tends to portray OCD in a more limited manner (i.e. contamination, checking, symmetry presentations). Research has also found mental health professionals are often unaware of the broad range of ways that OCD can present.

Our hope is to gather a more comprehensive understanding of the types of obsessions and the associated levels of stigma that may be experienced by different OCD presentations among individuals with OCD. We hope that doing so will provide a strong foundation for future work that will focus on increasing awareness regarding OCD and decrease stigma associated with OCD.

The survey is completely anonymous. No identifying information will be collected and survey responses cannot be traced to individual participants. The survey takes approximately 30 minutes, individual completion times may vary. Your participation is completely voluntary and you may decide to discontinue with the study at any time. There are no anticipated risks associated with completing this survey; however, it is possible that you may experience some emotional upset when thinking about your OCD symptoms.
