OU/BBC co-produced documentary wins Mind Media Award

 
'David Harewood: Psychosis and Me', a documentary co-produced by the BBC and The OU’s Broadcast and Partnerships team, has been recognised at the Mind Media Awards. The annual awards recognise and celebrate the best representations of mental health across TV, radio, print and online.
 
'Psychosis and Me' was shortlisted in the Documentary category and David was a winner in the Speaking Out category- awarded to those who have made an impact by sharing their own experiences of mental health problems.

At 23 years-old, actor, David Harewood had a psychotic breakdown and was sectioned. As he puts it, he ‘lost his mind’. The one-off documentary tells David’s full story – piecing back together what happened to him and helping others better understand what it’s like to experience psychosis.
 
OU Academic Consultant, Dr Sarah Vicary, Associate Head of School for Wellbeing, Education & Language Studies was involved in advising and shaping production.
 

To hear more from Dr Sarah Vicary on her role at the OU and how she hopes the documentary will inspire learning about mental health, view more from her interview here.
