My Mania and Me

TV Series

Pyromania, kleptomania and nymphomania are all well-known conditions but what lies behind them? Channel 4 has commissioned two ground-breaking films examining the lives of six people who have an uncontrollable urge to set fires, gamble, have sex, shop, steal or give in to bursts of anger. What connects these conditions is that they are all a form of Impulse Control Disorder or ICD. ICD is a relatively new definition of a psychiatric condition first documented in the 2013 edition of the psychiatrists’ bible, The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Stastistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It describes ICD as the failure to resist a temptation, an urge or impulse that may harm the sufferer or others and through a specific lack of self-control.
