People suffering from OCD are battling their illness and the mental health system simultaneously.

What happens when the system fails the patient?
They suffer more
What happens when some medical providers turn their backs on patients?
Unwilling to treat OCD
More patients suffer

What happens when OCD providers are limited to certain areas
Patients suffer
What happens when the cost of care is unattainable?

Who created such a system?
Oppressing the most vulnerable
OR
What happens when friends fade away?
Judging mental illness like it’s contagious
The sufferer becomes isolated
OR
What happens to society
When we stigmatize mental health?
Fear, hopelessness, shame intertwine
Inside an OCD mind

As society wash away the stains
Proliferating our air
As patients suffer

What will happen if we address the mental health crisis?
Properly funding this system
