» Programme on OCD seeks participants

We have been contacted by a TV production company looking for people aged 18 – 30 who have OCD and would be willing to take part in a TV programme about living with the condition.

Crackit Productions are making a new two part series following the impact of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder on people aged between 18 and 30 years old. The series aims to demystify this condition and reflect the reality of how people live with this disorder on a day to day basis.

The production company are looking for people who have OCD (or believe they might have OCD) to take part in the show. They say that contributors will be supported throughout the filming and aftercare will be provided for people who take part in the final aired programme. However if you are considering this, we would advise you to think carefully before agreeing to participate.

World Mental Health Day

Tuesday October 10th is World Mental Health Day! Join in the conversation about mental health and help reduce the stigma. Mental Health is everyone’s business! #WorldMentalHealthDay & #WMHD17

Mental Health affects us all. How we think and feel about ourselves and our lives impacts on our behaviour and how we cope in tough times.

It affects our ability to make the most of the opportunities that come our way and play a full part amongst our family, workplace, university, community and friends. It’s also closely linked with our physical health.

Whether we call it wellbeing, emotional welfare or mental health, it’s key to living a fulfilling life.

There are a wealth of different resources and ideas on how you can get involved on the internet:-

World Mental Health Day film show

As part of World Mental Health Day on October 10, USW will be showing A Beautiful Mind in TRB001 in the Brecon Bulding on Treforest Campus.

The showing runs from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.

The 2001 film, starring Russell Crowe, is an American biographical drama which is based on the life of John Nash, Nobel Laureate in Economics.

The story begins in Nash’s days as a graduate student at Princeton University. In the film, Nash begins to develop paranoid schizophrenia and endures delusional episodes while painfully watching the loss and burden his condition brings on wife Alicia and friends.

The film lasts just over two hours. Time has been built in for post-movie discussion.
