Inna Vision Film School [2013-2014] was a year long participatory project in East London, working with adults with lived experience of mental health issues, and those without. The aim was to make films that challenge stigma and discrimination around mental health, with a particular focus on issues affecting African and Caribbean communities in the UK.
Inna Vision was led by Bhavesh Hindocha and Geoff Johnston. It was a partnership between Social Action for Health, Mellow, East London Hopefuls and Loud Minority. It was funded by Time To Change, England’s biggest programme to end the stigma and discrimination faced by people with mental health problems.
