Obsession with COVID-19 Scale

Obsession with COVID-19 Scale

Definition

The Obsession with COVID-19 Scale (OCS) is a self-report mental health screener of persistent and disturbed thinking about COVID-19. Because the COVID-19 crisis affects nearly every aspect of a person’s life, the OCS was developed to help clinicians and researchers efficiently identify cases of individuals functionally impaired by their COVID-19 related thinking patterns.
