Mersey Cares animation project

  • 1 October 2013 - 31 December 2013

Participants who have experience of accessing the mental health services from Mersey Care NHS Trust have been working with artist Babis Alexiadis to create animations about their experiences with mental health issues.

The films demonstrate how telling a story through creativity can lead to a whole different perspective on a persons experiences. The films are produced by the participants taking guidance and inspiration from Babis, and feature soundtracks by Moby.

They explore serious issues of mental health while each having a beautiful delicacy. The participants have worked with Babis for 3 months and the films are now available to view above.

The project was produced by FACT in partnership with Mersey Care NHS Trust.
