Family history of mental health conditions
While there is not a specific reason for hoarding, some cases have shown that genetics and brain functioning can play a role in the development of a hoarding disorder.
We certainly cannot confirm that if a family member has struggled with a mental health condition or disorder, that the victim is suffering from the same conditions. Studies have just shown the connection and have recognized it as a risk factor.
Bio-One of Oceanside’s main goal when helping families and victims struggling with hoarding is to make everyone feel comfortable enough to trust us with their belongings and possessions. Our technicians are trained to be caring, mindful, and respectful of their situation, and we will make it a priority to save all items of value (legal documents, photographs, collectibles, keys, wallets, etc.).
A personal struggle with other mental health conditions
Hoarding has been recognized as a mental health illness. Doctors and mental health professionals can provide treatment for this condition to achieve a normal, enjoyable life.
This is why is so important to turn for professional help in the face of a hoarding situation. Victims may be also struggling with other mental health conditions like depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorder, dementia, etc.
