OCD Research

Research plays a significant role in helping us better understand Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and to further develop evidence-based treatments available for people living with OCD.

Whenever we are approached by a researcher we carry out our own due diligence, we have a duty to you our supporters, to protect your rights, dignity, well-being, valuable time and, of course safety. We ask questions of the research project and review thoroughly before we promote the research on our website. OCD-UK believes this policy on being selective in the research we promote ensures our supporters can have confidence in participation of this research listed below.

Uncertainty, Anxiety, and Interpersonal Relationships

People react differently to uncertainty; some find it more difficult to manage than others. This may contribute to anxiety and worries about what may happen. Relationships with other people can sometimes be a source of concern, but they can also help people manage their uncertainties and worries. People differ in the extent to
which they rely on people around them, to help them cope with uncertainty and anxiety.

What is the purpose of the study?
This study seeks to further understand how these different experiences and behaviours are related.

What will participants be asked to do?
If you are over the age of 18 and comfortable in written English you will be asked to spend 30 minutes to complete an anonymous survey. You do not need to experience difficulties with worry, symptoms of anxiety, or any related mental health difficulties, to participate in this study.
