#EmergingProud is a grassroots film made from a compilation of interview clips conducted by Katie Mottram, and clips sent in by people wanting to share their stories for the campaign. The #EmergingProud campaign aims to reframe so called ‘madness’ as the catalyst for a positive transformation, if properly supported and validated. This film was made possible thanks to those who #EmergedProud to share their personal stories, and the donations of the music and artwork featured in the film. The aim is to provide HOPE to those going through psychological distress and difficult process, to show that there can be a benefit to be gained through the pain.
“This is more than a movie, this is a movement! A new paradigm of mental health and human awareness is emerging and these are some of the pioneering voices heralding that change. I watched the Emerging Proud film with tears in my eyes thinking of the lives that will be saved and of the possibilities and gifts made available when human transformation is managed well. And this is just the beginning…..” – Kimberley Jones, UK.
“Emerging Proud is an important contribution toward our understanding of what society labels as ‘psychosis’ or ‘serious mental illness.’ The subjects profiled in Katie Mottram’s film embody a clear and direct link to the spiritual nature of these experiences for many people. It’s time we start listening, there is so much to learn.” – PJ Moynihan, Producer/Director, Healing Voices
