The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Related Disorders Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School specializes in the treatment and research of OCD, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), BDD by Proxy, Tourette Syndrome (TS), Chronic Tic Disorder (CTD), Hoarding, Hair Pulling and Skin Picking, and Olfactory Reference Syndrome (ORS). Founded by Michael Jenike, M.D., and now under the leadership of OC spectrum expert, Sabine Wilhelm, Ph.D., our program strives to deliver evidence-based treatment to patients in need while simultaneously conducting research to advance our knowledge of the causes, consequences, and treatments of OCD, BDD, Tics, Hoarding, Hair Pulling and Skin Picking, and ORS.

OCD, BDD, and the tic disorders are commonly considered to belong to a group of disorders called the Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders. They are grouped together because they have some overlap in symptoms (repetitive thoughts and/or behaviors), may share a common neurobiological and genetic basis, and often co-occur within individuals.
