A film revealing the mental health struggles of a group of Dundonians is set to premiere in the city.
Making Recovery Real in Dundee captures the personal accounts and stories of 18 city residents who’ve experienced mental health difficulties and recovery.
The powerful film is the centrepiece of a wider project under the same name that was established in 2015 and backed by Dundee City Council, NHS Tayside and voluntary organisations. Led by the Scottish Recovery Network it aims to achieve a shift in power at all levels towards people with experiences of mental health problems.
Ken Lynn, chairman of the Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership, said: “The first step towards empowering people who have had mental health issues is to listen to their experiences and then act on what we have heard.”
Rob Warren, who recorded, directed and edited the 20-minute film, said: “I am pleased to have played a part in giving a voice to people who use statutory and voluntary services in Dundee.”
