What Is Trichotillomania?
It‘s estimated that between 1-2% of adolescents and adults suffer from the condition known as trichotillomania. Trichotillomania, sometimes referred to as Trich or TTM, is a body-focused repetitive behavior classified as an impulse control disorder that involves pulling out one’s hair. It cannot be voluntarily stopped. The hair pulling can affect the scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, or any other parts of the body, resulting in noticeable bald patches.
Many who suffer from this disorder do so in silence, due to the shame and embarrassment one feels about being exposed. It is essential to spread the message that those suffering from trichotillomania are not alone. The disorder does not define who one is, and help is available.
