Mental distress and the criminal justice system

Click here to watch the Live Stream at 7pm

Together for Mental Wellbeing are delighted to share our film on mental distress and the criminal justice system. The film shows the varied and multifaceted reasons people can become involved with the criminal justice system and what we can learn from their lived experiences. The people featured in the film have all used or volunteered with services provided by Together and they were involved in all stages of the production of the film. It was produced by Flexible Films and the music was provided by Eve McDougall, who also starred in it, with her band, the Invisibles. The participants in the film are living with a variety different mental health conditions ranging from depression and drug and alcohol dependencies to trauma, and experiences of psychosis. They relay their stories in an open and candid way on how they came into contact with the criminal justice system and the impact that had on them.
