We posted some time ago about the labelling effect of diagnosis and how diagnosis helps some but not others.

The film Crazywise is a documentary that ‘explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience’.

‘CRAZYWISE follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Adam, 27, suffers devastating side effects from medications before embracing meditation in hopes of recovery. Ekhaya, 32, survives childhood molestation and several suicide attempts before spiritual training to become a traditional South African healer gives her suffering meaning and brings a deeper purpose to her life.’

If this sounds like something you would like to watch, Mind in Camden are hosting a film screening on Wednesday, 18th July. You find all the details and buy tickets here.
