I am writing an article about BDD for a top glossy magazine and we're hoping to interview a woman whose boyfriend suffers from BDD.
This is a sensitive article and will involve a short phone interview and pictures.

WELCOME TO BDDHELP.CO.UK
BDD is a mental health problem related to body image, in which an individual has a preoccupation with one or more perceived or slight defects in his or her appearance. BDD is diagnosed only if the preoccupation causes significant distress, disrupts daily functioning, or both. Some people with BDD acknowledge that their distress may be an extreme response to the perceived or slight defect, whereas others are so firmly convinced about their perception that they are regarded as having a false belief. Whatever the degree of insight into their condition, people with a diagnosis of BDD usually realise that others believe their appearance to be 'normal' and have been told so many times; nevertheless, their perception of ugliness is very real to them. This website is here to support and educate the world about this illness.
