Lily Bailey

OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought

In conversation with Trixie Rawlinson

Saturday 5th October 2019, 5.15-6.15pm

Robert Graves Gallery


Candid and blackly humorous, Lily Bailey’s true account of her struggle with mental health is compelling.

As a child and teenager, Lily suffered from severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. She kept her illness private, until the widespread misunderstanding of the disorder spurred her on to write her memoir Because We Are Bad. Written to help others deal better with this diagnosis, Lily has since found a path to managing her obsessions and compulsions while making impressive inroads as a journalist, model and writer.

‘An intense heart-rending rollercoaster of a book.’
