This film centres on Skibbereen's pioneering Adult Mental Health service, 49 North Street which is an initiative of Cork Mental Health Services and the H.S.E. 49 North Street is a developing service which uses models of co-production and collaboration as its foundation. Reflecting on darker times the participants of ‘An Open Door’ discuss the importance of a service such as this. By providing a space which welcomes creative expression, and allows ideas and community to flourish, this film poses the question: ‘How can we continue to bridge the gap between the stigma often associated with ‘Mental Health’ and a more universally identifiable journey of ‘wellbeing’ ? We invite you to join the conversation.
This film was funded by Cork and Kerry Community Healthcare Mental Health Services.
