Lauren Halliwell from the Universality of Worcester is looking for people who either live or have lived with someone who has OCD. They don't have to be family, housemates, partners, and friends are welcome if they have spent some time living under the same roof.

Will the information I give stay confidential?
Everything you say/report is confidential unless you tell us something that indicates that you or someone else is at risk of harm. We would discuss this with you before telling anyone else. The information you give may be used for a research report, but it will not be possible to identify you from our research report or any other dissemination activities. Personal identifiable information (e.g. name and contact details) anonymised using participants numbers instead of names and will be securely stored and kept for 6 months after the project ends in May 2018 and then securely disposed of. The research data (e.g. interview transcripts) will be securely stored and may be used for further research purposes.
What will happen to the results of the research study?
This research is being carried out as part of my research project at the University of Worcester.
