Each of films shows young people, adults, clinical experts, and even some celebrities talking about how it is living with mental health conditions. They discuss what causes the condition, different treatment options available, experiences, what helps and more.
The first four videos cover:
- Anxiety - what impact it has, how to treat it and what helps people.
- Psychosis - looks at diagnosis, treatment options, and hears from people who have recovered successfully.
- Personality Disorder - looks at myths about this condition and examines the real facts.
- Neurodiversity - introduces neurodiversity and how it changes peoples' experience.
The videos are clear and give real, reliable facts from medical professionals and people who have the conditions. This video, about anxiety, is twenty minutes long and explains where anxiety comes from and what we can do about it.
