Do you fancy hosting your own #EmergingProud community film screening to help spread the word that breaking down does not mean we are broken?
Use your screening as a springboard to start a discussion group or peer forum in your local area; invite family, friends, mental health workers and holistic therapists to help build bridges through opening mids to new ways of perceiving psychological distress.
What do you need to do?
For just £50 (payable via this link), you will be sent a screening agreement and download of the film. This allows you to show the film in whatever format you wish, and sell tickets to recoup your investment. Please make sure your ticket prices are accessible to those on a low income (recommended price is £5).
Help to keep the momentum going; record the outcome of your discussions in the #EmergingProud forum – together we can create a tsunami of positive action!
“The #EP film was extremely affirming and emotive to watch. I found myself relating deeply to the people discussing their experiences of spirituality within mental health, and resonated with the struggle of being severely misunderstood. It was especially inspiring to witness each beautiful person have the courage to speak openly about their awakening with such depth and humour.” Thomas
“The #EP film blew me away – it was beautifully put together, and totally inspiring. More than just addressing the stigma attached to mental health, it speaks to the human condition in general and I think we all have a lot to learn from the stories that are being told. Absolutely loved it.” James
“This is more than a movie, this is a movement! A new paradigm of mental health and human awareness is emerging and these are some of the pioneering voices heralding that change. I watched the Emerging Proud film with tears in my eyes thinking of the lives that will be saved and of the possibilities and gifts made available when human transformation is managed well. And this is just the beginning…..” – Kimberley Jones, UK.
“Emerging Proud 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. It’s time we start listening, there is so much to learn.” – PJ Moynihan, Producer/Director, Healing Voices
“Thank you so much for working to further this movement. You’ve given me a safe space to shed many tears of joy and hope.”
