NCMH features in mental health film

A documentary film on mental health issues featuring longtime NCMH collaborator Neil “Twink” Tinning and several of the Centre’s Principal Investigators is due for release in March 2014.

Last Chance Saloon follows Twink as he embarks on a year long journey to understand mental illness while recording an album and performing live for the first time with his band.

The photographer and musician speaks to a number of leading authorities in neuroscience and mental health research about his own bipolar disorder, as well as a range of other conditions including ADHD, PTSD, and Alzheimer’s disease.

The film is a collaboration between Twink, charitable foundation the Wellcome Trust and NCMH, and will be released as a series of 11 online episodes of around 10 minutes each.

The first episode will be released online in early March by the Wellcome Trust on Mosaic, a new publication dedicated to explaining and exploring the science of life, with the final episode due for release in May.

The final episode will be followed by a full screening of the films at a special event in a Cardiff cinema during Mental Health Awareness Week 2014.
More information on the Last Chance Saloon launch and screening will be published soon on the Wellcome Trust’s Mosaic blog and the NCMH website.
