Hoarding Disorder

Hoarding Disorder

An individual with Hoarding Disorder acquires an excessive number of “things” and is unable to discard them even if they have no financial value. The difference between hoarding and clutter, is that hoarding interferes with everyday living – e.g., cannot walk from room to room or is causing significant distress to loved ones e.g., fears of becoming ill because of hoarding or unable to sleep in a proper bed. Insight is variable with hoarding and many individuals who hoard do not see it as an issue. It is frequently comorbid with depression. Item’s people may hoard include (but not limited to):

  • books
  • clothes
  • leaflets and letters, including junk mail.
  • bills and receipts
  • containers, including plastic bags and cardboard boxes.
  • household supplies
  • animals
  • Nail or hair clippings
