Mind the Cracks
Professor of Social and Community Psychiatry, University of Warwick
How can a creative production help us to understand the early stages of psychosis?
Professor Swaran Singh’s research revolves around health services, focusing on early psychosis, somatisation, and deliberate self-harm, as well as cultural and ethnic factors in mental illness, mental health law, transitions and medical education.
The 10 minute film includes an introduction to what psychosis is, and explains how the research captures the stories of people and their families experiencing it first hand. Including short excerpts from the play, some of which are verbatim text from interviews.
