The Wounded Healer and Mental Health Movies
Watch our discussion on creative ways to tackle mental health stigma in health and social care with ‘The Wounded Healer’ Dr Ahmed Hankir mental health nursing lecturer Dan Warrender, See Me Champion Dawn Getliffe and Tom Scott, See Me’s Health and Social Care Improvement Advisor.
Listen to our Anti Stigma Session on the amazing story of ‘The Wounded Healer’ Dr Ahmed Hankir on how his experiences of trauma and mental health problems have influenced him as a doctor.
Dr Ahmed did a special online version of The Wounded Healer, an innovative method of education and entertainment that blends the performing arts with psychiatry. The story traces Dr Ahmed's recovery journey from 'hopeless and suicidal man with mental illness' to receiving the Royal College of Psychiatrist's Foundation Doctor and Core Psychiatric Trainee of the Year awards.
We are also delighted to hear from mental health nursing lecturer Dan Warrender to talk about Mental Health Movie Monthly, an initiative he co founded to promote empathy and understanding by providing free showings of relevant films to staff, students and the general public to create discussions around mental health.
Dr Ahmed and Dan will be chatting with our Champion Dawn Getliffe and Tom Scott, our Health and Social Care Improvement Advisor.
Dawn also chats about her work in the health and social care system, and her “Pass the Parcel” campaign.
Trigger warning, this show will discuss war and the impact of it on mental health, as well as suicide.
