Is OCD an anxiety disorder?

3 Answers

  • "Significantly, in DSM-5 there was a significant and controversial change to where OCD was listed. The previous edition of the DSM (DSM-IV) categorised Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder (OCD) under ‘Anxiety Disorders’. However, some experts controversially suggested that the revised edition of the DSM remove OCD from this category and group it with loosely related conditions under the heading of ‘Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders‘, which is what they did indeed do for DSM-5."

    It's a mental health disorder, but not strictly linked or related to anxiety.
