Film & Video Campaigns

From the multi-award winning documentary LUCY – Breaking the Silence, to short films we have helped to fund, and campaign videos we have devised and created ourselves, we have found that film is a powerful and effective way to spread the message of the need for a change in the way Mental Health is perceived and understood in society.

If you have a project in mind, please do get in touch.
