Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)


 

BDD Treatment Information

To get an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment, people must mention specifically their concerns with their appearance when they talk to a doctor or mental health professional. A trained clinician should diagnose BDD1.

However, you can take a self-test that can help suggest if BDD is present, but it will not offer a definitive diagnosis.

If your child is preoccupied with appearance so that it interferes with concentration in school or if behaviors listed above appear, talk to a mental health professional.

Effective treatments are available to help BDD sufferers live full, productive lives.

Treatment is tailored to each patient so it is important to talk with a doctor to determine the best individual approach. Many doctors recommend using a combination of treatments for best results.
