ARTS IN HEALTH - Standing Out

Letting in the Light have been working in partnership with North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare’s Early Intervention Team for young people and young adults with an early onset psychosis, Job Centre Plus and local employers

The group produced an animated film that looks at issues facing people with mental health conditions when seeking employment, how they disclose their mental health status and how job centre staff and potential employees deal with disclosure.

The group learnt new skills in digital media, communication and building confidence for interviews and presentations and were involved in planning and decision making from the outset.

The project was funded though the ESF /  Staffordshire Community Foundation

As a direct result of the project the group have since created a promotional film, supported by Letting in the Light, to highlight the services the EI team provide.
