Question 1 Question 1 - Part (a) 'Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a form of anxiety where the person has thoughts, images or ideas which they find hard to ignore (obsessions). This can lead to them feeling that they have a need to perform certain things to feel better (compulsions). Most people worry, about something or other, all the time, and have routines and things they like to do in a particular way. Itâ€™s when the thoughts or actions start to affect a personâ€™s everyday life that itâ€™s considered to be OCD. Around one per cent of children and young people suffer from OCD. So in a secondary school of 1000 students there may be 10 people with OCD. There are lots of different types of OCD. For some people itâ€™s the same worrying thoughts or images that keep coming into their head â€“ the â€˜obsessionsâ€™ which they feel they have to â€˜cancel outâ€™ in some way with other thoughts. Other people feel the need to do things in order to stop or alleviate the thoughts (compulsions or rituals).
