Behind a Mind - London

Behind a mind host an OCD event in London

In February of this year, director of the fantastic short OCD film Locked and OCD-UK Trustee Claire Gellard launched a brand new Mental Health project called Behind a Mind, a project funded by The Maudsley Charity and has been designed to raise awareness and understanding of mental health using film, animation and expert talks.

The first feature for a Behind a Mind event was OCD, and took place at the Ortus Centre in London on Monday 10th February which featured first hand OCD presentations:

  • Heard from an OCD sufferer (OCD-UK trustee Claire Gellard) and a family member (OCD-UK trustee Yolanda Jerrard).
  • Heard from OCD expert, (OCD-UK patron Professor Paul Salkovskis)
  • Experienced the condition through a short award-winning film (Locked)
  • Understand the basics of the science behind the condition through a short animation
  • Q&A and refreshments to finish

You can now view event image gallery and watch the presentation videos on the Behind a Mind website. Claire's story is shown in the video below.
