Losing My Mind: David Harewood on the mental health frontline


  • Films of Record

Project summary

We are producing a one-hour film for the BBC, taking us to the heart of the mental health crisis, by talking to people experiencing acute crises and who are using frontline services. David Harewood was sectioned in his early 20s after experiencing a psychotic breakdown – he will tell his story for the first time, letting viewers see the realities of living with mental illness.

David’s story will empower others to speak out and seek help. It will also help to reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
