Hoarding has gained notoriety because of the mainstream media. According to many psychologists, this could be a good thing. "Exposure of this is helpful because people who hoard will recognize that their not the only ones and that assistance is available," said Dr. Lois Krahn, psychologist at the Mayo Clinic. "There family members will also know who to turn to for help."
