A couple of years ago I decided, along with a group of friends, to make a series of short films showing the effects that differing forms of Psychosis can have on young people. Psychosis can have a variety of effects on people’s mental health, such as suffering from extreme highs and extreme lows, or delusions and hallucinations.
We produced five short films each covering a slightly different form of Psychosis. Doing the project was a great experience. We had a screening of the films at the Harbour Lights cinema in Southampton and professional people attended from the NHS and Hampshire County Council among others.
Since the project I have gone on to work in mental health and hope to help young people who might be going through things like this.
