Three individuals who share a passion for raising awareness, provoking thought and exploring culture joined forces to create a film about mental health and the influence that culture can have on its prevention and recovery. The trio released the trailer on YouTube titled ‘Ghanaian State of Mind’ on World Mental Health Day (10th October). The trailer raised awareness and sparked much debate on how culture can play a part in the causes, perceptions and treatments.
The film includes interviews with mental health professionals and Ghanaians based in the UK and Ghana. The focal point of the film is a very likeable young man called Desmond who talks very openly about his experience dealing Bi-Polar disorder.
Please support this stigma removal by sharing the film with relevant people and encouraging them to get involved in the conversation.
