At least 2-3% of people suffer with body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRB).
That's twice the estimated number of people affected by OCD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or anorexia, (according to National Institute of Mental Health).
Wow- so many people have heard of OCD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and anorexia. But still so many have never heard of trich (or other BFRB). Why do you think that is?
