Obsessive-compulsive treatment efficacy trial

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a problem affecting between 1 and 3 per cent of the population, and is commonly treated with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). One of the ways people receive CBT is by following a self-help approach. There are different methods of self-help and experts are unsure which is more useful. The study will test the usefulness of two sets of self-help treatments in the short and long term: computerised CBT with email or telephone support from a mental health professional; and a self-help book combined with face-to-face, telephone or email support. The study will also consider whether either or both methods are better than the usual care that people receive.
