Living with Suicide

Over the past nine months we’ve been collaborating with Cheryl Hunter, a researcher and trainee Clinical Psychologist at the University of East London, and John DeWinne, a filmmaker and the founder of Mind Wick production company, on a participatory arts and research project named Living with Suicide.

We’re developing a series of creative resources to be shared widely with people with lived experience, loved ones, mental health professionals, researchers and policy makers.

Our first creative piece is the animated film Living with Suicide co-created by nine people with lived experience. It was launched on the 10th September 2020, World Suicide Prevention Day. It is a film about pain, despair and rage, but it is ultimately about survival.

Living with Suicide forms part of our two-year Wellcome Trust funded arts and research programme Create, Relate, Integrate.
