I made a couple of films recently with Shedlight Productions, commissioned by Raise, a mental health training and consultancy company. We were set the brief of exploring experiences of using mental health services from the perspective of service-users who self-harm and who have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. The point of the films was to communicate some of that insider perspective to carers and mental health workers.
The extra challenge was that the films had to be ‘funky’ and couldn’t show the identity of our subjects.
This was one of the films I made on self-harm.
