Media Opportunity!

We’re searching for people affected by OCD – either themselves, or as a friend/family member of someone with OCD – who are able and willing to be filmed for an exciting new project. It will involve either:

  1. telling your story of OCD/supporting someone with OCD, treatment and taking action, or
  2. delivering some pre-prepared educational content for an OCD smartphone/web application (under 25s only)

Whether you’ve experienced OCD yourself, are a parent, carer, sibling, friend, teacher or anything in between, we want to hear from you!

We’re working with a film-maker who has experience of OCD himself and, together, we will be creating a compelling and informative series of short films that focus on personal accounts of having the condition or supporting someone who does; seeking and accessing treatment; getting/staying well; and generally ‘fighting back’. Participants may be of any age and will ideally be able to talk about one or more of these stages.

We are also looking for young people to star in some short informational clips for our forthcoming OCD Youth app, which is currently being developed to support young people with OCD through treatment. If you’re under 25 and are willing to be filmed delivering some educational sound-bites (we can provide the content), let us know.

The two sets of films are designed to complement each-other – one giving an informative overview of OCD and treatment in the context of an OCD support smartphone/web application, and the other providing a more personal and motivational insight into what it’s actually like at each stage of the diagnosis, treatment and recovery process.

We are hoping to film in London on 21st October, but there is some flexibility with the time and place (you will only be required for 1.5-2hrs) and we may be able to help with expenses if you need to travel to reach central London. If you think you or someone you know might be interested in getting involved with this important project, please get in touch!

We would particularly like to hear from people who are from a Black, Asian or other UK minority community background to help us to help us improve understanding of OCD within these communities and encourage people to seek help.

To get involved, please contact Trish: trish@ocdaction.org.uk / 020 7253 5272

Question from Subscriber.

Do you have to be diagnosed? I would love to get involved. I have always been too scared to go to the doctors because I'm worried about misdiagnosis but I tick every box.
