Body-Dysmorphia (bdd) is a serious anxiety disorder in the UK affecting 1 in 10 men. There are still not enough support groups in the country which bdd sufferers can attend. One support group is changing this.
The West Midlands OCD Support Group has started welcoming people with Body-Dysmorphia to their group so they have somewhere to go to talk about the issues they are facing.
I went to Birmingham to meet John Hinckes and the team to hear all about the support groups work.
Dominic Edwards works as a group facilitator for the Body-Dysmorphia foundation but has also suffered with the disorder.
At the age of 19 he was diagnosed with bdd but has been “getting better ever since”. He knows exactly what a bdd sufferer goes through and uses his experiences when helping others.
