An informal screening of two films, CRAZYWISE and #EmergingProud, with time for discussion and reflection
CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience. The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about mental health crises. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? This film introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease. CRAZYWISE appeared at the Seattle Film festival on 21 May 2017.
The #EmergingProud campaign was created to give a voice to people who consider their psychological crisis to have been part of a positive transformational process. It provides an important contribution to our understanding of what society labels ‘psychosis’ or ‘serious mental illness.’ The subjects profiled in Katie Mottram’s film embody a clear and direct link to the spiritual nature of these experiences for many people." ~ PJ Moynihan, Producer and Director, Healing Voices
#EmergingProud had its world premiere on 12 May 2017 in 12 countries.
CPD certificates available at the end of the workshop. Suggested donation £25 including lunch. Booking essential.
