MIND OVER MATTER

Mind Over Matter

Mind Over Matter is a short documentary film exploring the lives of people living with mental health problems. It follows the filmmaker on a quest to find out how people deal with their individual issues and to investigate alternative treatments to medication.

It is often speculated that medication is prescribed by doctors as an ‘easy fix’ for mental health issues, rather than treating patients on a case-by-case basis. Mind Over Matter aims to break the stigma around a frequently unspoken subject while offering support and advice.

The documentary is a lighthearted, humorous and personal approach to mental health. The aim is to educate those with little knowledge on the subject, whilst also encouraging society to be more accepting of those who struggle to deal with these issues on a daily basis.
