#EmergingProud: psychological crisis as positive transformative experience
The #EmergingProud campaign was created to give a voice to people who consider their psychological crisis to have been part of a positive transformational process.
"#EmergingProud is an important contribution toward our understanding of what society labels as ‘psychosis’ or ‘serious mental illness.’ The subjects profiled in Katie Mottram’s film embody a clear and direct link to the spiritual nature of these experiences for many people" - PJ Moynihan, producer/director, Healing Voices.
The documentary crazywise explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience. The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? crazywise introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see a psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease.
This is an informal double film screening with the opportunity to discuss the issues raised with the producer of the #EmergingProud film - Katie Mottram (dialling in to join us) and two therapists with psychospiritual training - Jane Mehta and Kathy Gherardi.
