We are making a documentary by men for men. My Discombobulated Brain's male trustees are spearheading a documentary about mental health from real men. We are creating a resource showing real men talking about mental health and sharing their truth.
The money will mean that we can produce the best documentary that we can and it can be used in our work in schools, universities, drop-ins and business'. It will help us create a support pack around it so that we can train our volunteers to use with groups throughout the community.
The funding will also create shorts for social media etc. This is going to be used to help young boys and men within our community.
This has come about through My Discombobulated Brain an organisation which was started following our founder losing one of her best friends Jonathan to suicide and then she went on to experience her own mental health issues. The individuals involved with this project have all had personal experiences with mental health and are driven to make a difference.
