The Silent Epidemic: OCD and a World in Crisis

By Abby Chitty

This is my most recent documentary, made in lockdown.

It explores the impact of global crises on sufferers of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

OCD affects between 1-2% of the UK population but is still widely misunderstood as an illness.
