BDD SUPPORT GROUP
A MELBOURNE-BASED SUPPORT GROUP FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER
To provide information and support to those suffering BDD, their partners, families, & friends. We hold meetings once a month in Ashburton, with all welcome. This website is a place where people can anonymously share their stories, catchup on info from past meetings, and receive support from our volunteers.
If you have story you’d like to share on our website, please submit it here.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), also known as Body Dysmorphia, Dysmorphic Syndrome, and Dysmorphophobia, is a mental illness that is often diagnosed 10 - 20 years after it develops, affects both men and women equally, and is frequently associated with obsessive compulsive disorders.

Please be advised that you should not act on any information you receive on this site without consulting medical professionals. All group facilitators are volunteers & all discussions within the group are confidential. If you or someone you know is suffering from BDD then you should contact a medical professional in your local area.
