GP Awareness of Hoarding Disorder is very important:
Please encourage your local GP to print out the poster – Living Room – and put it in their surgery.
Click HERE to view/download the poster
If there is a support group in the area please advise your GP about that too.
For GP’s themselves – to give them a bit of an overview there is the GP’s leaflet – 4 pages to print off for their information.
Pass it on – this is raising awareness. You can do this anytime of the year but this week is a good starting point to get the discussion going.
The GP’s leaflet was created by Clouds End CIC and was developed after a Hoarding Awareness Training session with GPs.

Making Room has made this video on their event that took place in 2016 during Hoarding Awareness Week:
If clutter, disorganisation or hoarding is affecting your health (mental or physical health) and making you feel anxious, depressed or unwell, then it’s advisable to have a chat with your GP.
If you don’t know what to say or how to start the conversation, then simply download, print off and complete this Ice-Breaker document, and hand it to your GP (or other medical professional).
They should then start asking all sorts of questions to enable them to start working out what might be causing your symptoms, and discuss some options that will hopefully help make you feel better. There could be a number of different things causing you to feel unwell, so it’s best not to assume there’s just one cause, or just one treatment.
Don’t be surprised if they suggest involving other people to support you or your family with practical assistance to reduce the clutter, disorganisation or hoarding affecting your life. The result should be a positive effect on your health, which should ultimately reduce the risk of ongoing health problems in the future.
