    It's still hitting around 1% of the population, which I think is quite high! Though I do agree, I thought it would be more prominent. It's likely one where traits will cross over too - so more people may have symptoms associated with OCD, but be diagnosed with anxiety, or OCPD, etc.
    Very true! It's still coming out slightly more common as conditions like schizophrenia, so clearly something we need to continue research into and awareness for :yep:
