The Secret Illness


The Secret Illness is a pro bono creative arts project that we initiated, and continue to support and develop, that aims to open up conversations around mental health, and in particular Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

The Secret Illness has become a truly collaborative global community that explores the realities of living with obsessive compulsive disorder through the creative arts. Within a few months of launch “The Secret Illness Wall” attracted significant press interest.

This animated film created from a poem written by James about his OCD won the IOCDF video award and we were invited to speak about the project at the 2017 IOCDF conference in San Francisco.
