Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation

Overview

The BDD Foundation is a UK-based charity devoted to alleviating the suffering of people affected by Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).  It cares greatly about the distress BDD causes, but it is not a helpline or crisis service.

The term BDD describes a disabling preoccupation with perceived defects or flaws in appearance.  It can affect both men and women, and makes sufferers excessively self-conscious.  They tend to check their appearance repeatedly, and try to camouflage or alter the defects they see, often undergoing needless cosmetic treatments.  Onlookers are frequently perplexed because they can see nothing out of the ordinary, but BDD causes devastating distress and interferes substantially with the ability to function socially.
