Over the summer I wrote Mitchell, a short film about mental health, as part of the Moving Pictures project at Toynbee Hall. The project was funded by Time to Change, a campaign launched by mental health charity Mind, and run by the brilliant Kate Lovell and a fantastic group of volunteers. The aim of the project was to raise awareness around mental health.
