BUT I'M HERE FOR MENTAL HEALTH (2013)
Producer: Magnus Dennison
Director: Katja Roberts
Short Drama-Documentary / Online Campaign
In this film actors depict the experiences of people who are supported by Tyneside Mind and have been through the Work Capability Assessment. The WCA process has been widely criticised for being both distressing and detrimental to health, and this film offers a true and stark portrayal of how some people have been affected. The film contains references to suicide which you may find triggering, please watch carefully. Many people continue to find the WCA process stressful, insensitive, inaccurate and unfair. It needs to change.
