Best For You


For teachers’ notes and more:…

This short animated film uses the testimony of a young girl called Annabel to create an intimate portrait of how coping with OCD can feel.

Annabel explains how her compulsions affected her daily life at school and at home, and ultimately led her to reaching rock bottom before she received help.

The film’s strong animated visuals will open up pupils’ eyes to how having an OCD can feel, the way it relates to stress and how classmates’ behaviour can affect a person suffering from OCD or depression.

This animation will be particularly useful for teachers to use in discussions about understanding others, how to deal with stress and loss, and what to do when feeling low.

This short film is from a BBC Teach series called When I Worry About Things. It is intended as a classroom resource and, due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter, we strongly advise teacher viewing before watching with your pupils.
