"Doing something collectively helped normalise things and for me to be more brave. I want to use it as a launch-pad to be more creative."
"[The workshops and the film help with] removing the stigma of depression and shame about previous mental health problems. Creatively stimulating - unifying visual art, movement and emotion."
"[It was an] opportunity to express myself, listen to others, use movement/dance to express feelings/ emotions. [I’m proud of] the fact that the end result will be shown to others to raise awareness on mental health."
