Online mental health research: Hoarding Disorder Questionnaire
Hoarding Disorder (HD) is the acquisition of and failure to discard large quantities of items, leading to problematic and disabling levels of clutter. It is a potentially serious and chronic psychiatric condition which can vary in degree. HD can cause considerable distress for the hoarding individual and their families, and can also pose a significant risk to personal and public health through fire hazards and vermin infestation.
