Mental health is finally getting the attention it deserves, thanks to high-profile individuals speaking openly about their experiences. Join us for this introductory course exploring how mental health and mental illness have been portrayed – for better or worse – in cinema.
The conversation around mental health and mental illness has evolved considerably over recent decades, with high-profile individuals now speaking openly about their experiences, and public campaigns to raise awareness and help support those affected.
This short introductory course, led by Kenton Hall, takes a look at some of the ways in which movies have helped – and hindered – our understanding of issues surrounding mental health.
Week 1: From Bedlam to Beautiful Minds
Week 2: From Cuckoo’s Nests to Silver Linings
Using Zoom, the course will deliver expert tuition, film clips and group discussion – all in the comfort of your own home.
Places can be booked online only. Access details will be sent to participants by email shortly before the first session.
