Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation

The BDD Foundation is the only charity in the world dedicated exclusively to supporting those affected by Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). BDD is a serious mental health condition affecting 1 in 50 people, sadly with very high suicide rates. The condition is still poorly understood, and so their charity mission is to raise awareness, support those living with the condition, and encourage further research.


They provide an email helpline, online and in person support groups, conferences and educational webinars, and a 20-week group therapy programme modelled on CBT principles.
