About Not Alone Notes


Not Alone Notes mails free, handwritten letters to others with OCD to remind them they aren’t alone, encourage hope, and dispense resources.

Do you sometimes feel lonely about having OCD? Were you recently diagnosed with OCD? Do you not know anyone else with the disorder?

Or DO you know a loved one with OCD?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, request a Not Alone Note for yourself or a loved one!

We will mail you a handwritten note for free on a handmade card as a reminder that you are not alone in this fight.

The idea from this project stemmed from becoming pen pals with several friends from OCDcon. Morgan was writing back and forth with them and wanted to somehow reach out to strangers with OCD. Morgan loves snail mail because there is something special about receiving a handwritten letter, so she wanted to pass that on to others.

In September of 2017, it started simply as a link to a Google Form on Morgan’s blog. Shortly after, Molly reached out to Morgan with the idea of handmaking notecards for the project. Not Alone Notes has continued to grow as Molly and Morgan work together to send letters to individuals with OCD and related disorders.

We have received many wonderful thank you messages in return. They make our day and inspire us to continue with the project.
