Have you ever had a strange urge to jump from a tall building, or steer your car into oncoming traffic? You are not alone. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder comes in many shapes and forms and affects around 1.2% of the UK population.
This week we are very excited to have best selling author Dr David Adam is coming to speak with us! David is the author of Sunday Star Times best seller The Man Who Couldn’t Stop – The Truth About OCD.
David will teach us about what it’s like to live with OCD and explore the weird thoughts that exist within every mind, and how they drive millions of us towards obsessions and compulsions. This assembly will be sure to challenge the way you think about what is normal, and what is mental illness.
This Sunday Assembly will be hosted by our co-founder Sanderson Jones (his last assembly hosting for a few months!) and we will have the wonderful Christy Ku doing some poetry for us.
We’ll also be doing our usual: Mass singalongs to some of our favourite power ballads, an awesome spoken word artist, hearing stories from a number of our community and drinking a vat of tea afterwards.
Please remember, Sunday Assembly London is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please support us if you can to keep it free for those who can’t. You can become a supporter here.
Conway Hall have let us know that there is one accessible parking spot in Red Lion Square, but it is frequently in use. However, parking is free and unrestricted on Sundays outside Conway Hall.
