This study has been reviewed, and approved, by University of Oxford, Central University Research Ethics Committee (CUREC) board (ref: R86617/RE001).
Do you offer support to someone with OCD or hoarding difficulties?
We are looking for volunteers, aged 30+ years old, to answer a survey about offering support to individuals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and/or hoarding difficulties.
What is the purpose of the study?
Learning more about offering support to these individuals will help mental health services to plan more effective treatments and consider how best to involve those who support them.
What will participants be asked to do?
To take part, you must know the person with OCD and/or hoarding difficulties well, e.g., a family member or friend you have known for a number of years. The person must also be aged 30+ years old. You and the person being offered support must live in the UK. Research participants who offer support will be asked to respond to a number of questions, most of which have multiple options. This should take about 30 minutes. No specialist background knowledge is required.
