Description

The pin badge carrying the ‘Just a Thought?’ slogan are an initiative from OCD-UK to raise awareness of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and to also use as a self-help tool.

The message embossed on the badge is ‘JUST A THOUGHT?’, which not only helps explain the condition but also helps remind sufferers during tougher moments that their obsessive thoughts are just that, thoughts!

The ‘Just a Thought?’ slogan was coined by OCD-UK discussion forum user Michelle Dean, who said she hoped the slogan for the badges would help sufferers and non-sufferers alike to understand the condition, which affects two to three per cent of the population. She said: “OCD is so misunderstood. Sufferers all know that what they worry about is just a thought, and I hope that wearing the band will remind them of that when they have a bad moment. The question mark tells the story of OCD. People who don’t have OCD can have a negative thought and put it away without question. For OCD sufferers, it may become an obsession, and that in turn can lead to their compulsions.”

The badges are made of hard enamel and are 26.2mm high and 25.4mm wide, with all proceeds going to OCD-UK.  Each pin badge comes wrapped in its own individual sealed packet.
