My IBD Journey

My IBD Journey: life after an IBD diagnosis

For many people, diagnosis with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be an overwhelming and confusing time. Not just for the person with the condition, but also for those who are close to them.

“My IBD Journey: life after IBD diagnosis” is an animated video based on typical experiences of people with either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. It is aimed at people newly diagnosed with an IBD and the content has been suggested by people already living with the condition. Offering practical advice on some positive steps people can take following an IBD diagnosis, the video aims to help people overcome some of the challenges they are likely to face when learning to live with IBD.

This video has been produced by Janssen, in collaboration with the European Federation of Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA). For more information about EFCCA, please visit
