    OCD and Personality Disorders
    Mental Health Awareness Week 2016


    Personality disorders are mental illnesses where an individual differs significantly from an average person, in terms of how they perceive, think, feel about or relate to others. According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, in any given time, up to 1 in 20 people in England will have a personality disorder

    TSR is running a campaign all of this week for Mental Health Awareness Week 2016 to promote and inform others of the state of mental health and to try and reduce the stigmas associated with mental health.

    Some of our team have already written about OCD and personality disorders to get the ball rolling. Make sure to check them out here:Do you suffer with OCD or a PD? Want to clear up the stereotypes associated with it, or simply want to tell people about your experiences? Get involved in the conversation! Reply below or make a thread about it. Let's get people talking about mental health.

    You can post anonymously here.

    We're holding various events and writing about lots of different themes throughout the week. Take a look here!

    I am pretty sure I suffer with a personality disorder and mild OCD and am happy to write about it, but it will have to be during the day when I have access to my computer/laptop! So subbing for this reason

    I'm so glad to see that OCD has a special place in the awareness week. One of my number one goals in life is to raise awareness of this condition and erase the misconceptions surrounding it once and for all. I just hope I educate without totally pushing my views down peoples throats though

    I've got a thread and blog set up on here for OCD so if anyone needs any more info or to just have a chat, just give me a shout
