Wristbands carrying the message ‘Just a Thought?’ slogan are the popular awareness initiative from OCD-UK first launched back in 2006 and are still selling strong over a decade later!

The wristbands are partly to raise awareness of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, but also to act has a therapeutic aid for those struggling with the condition. The message embossed on the band, ‘JUST A THOUGHT?’ not only helps explain the condition, but also helps remind sufferers during tougher moments that their obsessive thoughts are just that, thoughts which the OCD questions.

The ‘Just a Thought?’ slogan was coined by OCD-UK discussion forum user Michelle Dean, who said she hoped the wristbands 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 wristbands are all made of silicone and with all proceeds going to OCD-UK.  Each wristband comes wrapped in its own individual sealed packet.

They now come with the option of non-coloured embossed text for those wanting a little discreetness, or white coloured embossed text for those wanting to raise awareness! – Please be sure to select your preferred option before adding to the cart.
