esc films partnered with mental health charity, Inspire, to help young people with mental health issues work through their experiences through film. The results were breathtaking – and transformative.
Through talking together with staff at Inspire (then Niamh) we discovered that there was a significant misfit of services for young people once they left CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) and entered adult services. There was nothing especially suited for their stage in life. Inspire had set up a peer mentoring group called Belfast Connects, esc films joined them to help them tell their stories to help them re-connect with themselves and with each other.
