The fears, thoughts and hopes of people suffering with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are “being laid bare” on dedicated website, The Secret Illness arts project.
Those living with the debilitating condition are submitting admissions of guilt and shame on The Wall.
According to the NHS, OCD is a mental health condition characterised by unwanted or unpleasant thoughts, images or urges. It is estimated that 12 in 1,000 people are affected by the condition.
Filmmaker, Liz Smith originally started collecting ideas for a documentary on OCD in 2015, but was soon inspired to widen the project as a means for sufferers and artists to explore the condition.
People with the condition are able to post their feelings on The Wall by emailing Liz, who curates the submissions.
The website states: “OCD is an often misunderstood and trivialised mental illness. We want to change that.”
