Do you suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)?
Do you reside in the USA?

The Department of Psychology at New York University is looking for paid participants in an online psychology study that aims to better understand psychiatric disorders, in particular OCD. Unlike most studies, it does not matter if you also suffer from one or more other psychiatric disorders, so long as you currently have symptomatic OCD. Prior to taking part in the study, you must speak with a trained clinician over the telephone. They will assess your eligibility for this study by asking you some questions that relate to mental health. You must have a US telephone number in order to take part.
If you meet the criteria for this study, you can take part on your computer at home! Taking part in the study involves completing a computerized battery of tests and questionnaires on your personal computer. It should take approximately 2 hours to complete and you will be paid $20 for taking part, in addition to a small bonus for performance on one of the computerized tasks, which will range between 0-$1.
