summary of project

Our work with Flourish House came about after discussions with See Me Scotland. We looked at how we could collaborate to create films that show different perspectives on mental health and help raise the profile of available services. See Me introduced us to the work of Flourish House in Glasgow and the stigma free environment they champion.

Flourish House is a Clubhouse that enables people with mental health difficulties to recover confidence and skills whilst achieving social, financial and vocational goals.

our approach

We discussed with members and staff at Flourish House what makes the Clubhouse model and their ethos special, why it matters and what they achieve together.

We worked closely with a group of members to plan and create a short film that highlights the many different aspects of the Clubhouse model and the impact it has on members’ lives. Throughout the process, the members learned technical skills in camera and sound, interview technique, and skills in planning and developing short form video content.

Following the first project, the members worked with us to create a second film which talks about their Transitional Employment Placement initiative; a way of helping people with mental health difficulties back into the workplace as part of their recovery journey.

The films showcase a vital and forward thinking approach to mental health recovery, and demonstrate the value of our collaborative, co-production approach.
