dc.description.abstract“I’m quite OCD about not eating blue m&ms.” OCD is an abbreviation for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and we hear people describing their habits as OCD all the time. But do we really understand what it means to have OCD? Drawing references from popular media, we use the term as a quirky adjective based on the limited knowledge that we have. As we repeatedly do so, our action undermines the severity of the condition and contributes to the stigmatisation of the mental disorder. “This is not a Quirk” hopes to shine light on the many facets of OCD that may not be familiar to us. By documenting my attempt of understanding the disorder, I invite the audience to join me on the first step of the way to more acceptance of mental disorders in our society.en_US
