New guidance to help diagnose hoarding disorder

New guidance may help doctors correctly diagnose hoarding disorder. Hoarding disorder affects around 2% of the population but remains a largely misunderstood mental health condition. It was only added to the International Classification of Diseases in 2019, having previously been classified under Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The guidance is written by experts from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, who have also organised a free conference in Cambridge on Wednesday, 10 May to provide the public with more information about the condition.
