Short Films About Mental Health and Illness Emerging on YouTube: ‘The Mind’ – Joint Winner of 2012 Frame of Mind Award

‘The Mind’ is the 2012 joint winner of the ‘Frame of Mind‘ award. The Tamil film tells the story of a young man with Paranoid Schizophrenia who tries to manage his illness alone and the experiences he has. Film is an excellent way to easily communicate issues about mental health and illness which otherwise might be hard for the audience to understand.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists does some very good work in relation to films with the blog ‘Minds on Film‘ by Dr Joyce Almeida.

    A beautiful and sad film. From the moment Arun asks his father if he is week – I am in tears.
