Further Understanding

During the course of filming and screening the films, Marcus Coates and the five directors took part in debrief interviews and conversations, discussing the process of filming and directing. 

Contextual programmes of talks and workshops coinciding with presentations of the films encourage open public discussion around the nation’s mental health, including Akiko Hart’s panel discussing social inequality and psychosis, and the distinction between psychosis and the more popularly understood perceptions of neurosis.

The films are actively accessed and shown in medical, psychiatric and care settings as well as in judicial education to support the reduction of stigma around psychosis. This page will continue to be updated with resulting research, resources and conversations.
