An Alarming Turn of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Among the Youth of Turkey

Author(s):Muhammad Arslan*

The study aimed to screen Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD); a progressively burdensome, highly prevalent, untreated, poorly detectable psychic condition in the general population of Turkey, of around 401 participants, mainly focusing on two parameters (Age groups and Gender). Screening Questions were asked through online questionnaires regarding different attributes of the disorder. In this review, we consider a screening measure, a Questionnaire that is not designed to diagnose OCD but to help people determine and inform mental health professionals for further discussion about diagnosis and treatment plan. The occurrence of OCD in youth especially females of age ranging from 20 years to 30 years is noticeable due to high inflation and the recent pandemic. Questionnaires for screening in fields where affected individuals congregate seem persuasive, although evidence that screening is socially & clinically beneficial in terms of reducing morbidity is still lacking. People seem to be unaware of the sign & symptoms, its progression, and hence the severity of the disease, as it stays undetected due to lack of proper instruments, so evaluation of screening tools and their use in reducing disease burden are important areas for further research.
