Afromindz

Every two seconds somebody Googles 'depression' in the UK and whilst in recent years we have seen a transformation in attitudes towards talking about mental health, I am from  a community where silence remains golden. 

Hello, this is Titilope and Bolu,  we are the producers of  Afromindz, a documentary focused on capturing the perception of mental health in the Black community.  

The aim of this documentary is to  raise awareness and inform the Black community about the importance of mental health, through sharing real life stories of individuals who have experienced challenging mental health.  We aim to  contribute to changing the perception and narrative amongst Black community that depression is a “white man’s problem, " and remove the stigma surrounding seeking professional help.

The  Black community is highly religious and known to rely on religious leaders for help when going through difficult times. While prayers are comforting and effective, religious leaders are currently not equipped to advice or treat mental illnesses.

This documentary explores the relationship between faith and mental health.  We aim to promote solutions to equip leaders in the Church to support members with challenging mental health . 

In a community where many frown on sharing their problems with the world, it is difficult to get people to share their experiences of mental health on camera. We have successfully found willing participants across the UK with insightful stories which we believe will convey a strong message and have a positive impact on viewers. 
 
To successfully execute our vision we need your support, so far we have purchased and rented equipment to kick start the documentary however we will not be able to self fund the rest of the documentary and would appreciate your support in finishing what we've started.

We believe this documentary has the potential to drive  a much needed change within our community.
