What is Trichotillomania? Trichotillomania is a mental health disorder characterized by the repetitive urge to pull out one's own hair, leading to hair loss and distress. Individuals with trichotillomania may pull hair from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, or other areas of the body. Prevalence of Trichotillomania: Trichotillomania is a relatively uncommon disorder. According to the Trichotillomania Learning Center, the estimated prevalence of trichotillomania in the general population is around 1% to 2%. Treatment Options for Trichotillomania: Addressing trichotillomania involves therapy, support, and self-management strategies. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and habit reversal training are effective approaches to help individuals gain control over the urge to pull hair and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
