The Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation

Charity description

The Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation logo
The BDD Foundation is dedicated to the relief of suffering from BDD. It aims to advance education and understanding of BDD. It supports research into BDD and its treatments. Whilst we are based in the UK, our reach is international and we are proud to be the only charity for BDD in the world.

The term Body Dysmorphic Disorder (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.

Donating to the BDD Foundation is your chance to make a real difference to the lives of people affected by BDD. BDD can cause severe mental anguish and be incredibly lonely. Sufferers are often house-bound and many lose contact with friends and even family.

We are a small charity in desperate need of funds. Your kind and generous donations can really make a huge impact to the lives of those affected by this debilitating disorder.

Heartfelt thanks for your support.
