Residents at Dower House, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust’s (SLaM) adult Self-harm service, have developed an animated short film. To watch via YouTube: click here.

Titled ‘The Perspex Human’, the short film was developed by patients and staff on the unit and in the Occupational Therapy department, under the guidance of experienced animator Assaf Hayut. The animation project asked participants the question ‘what is in a human?’ The theme provided residents with an enjoyable creative project which enabled them to explore both the literal interpretations as well as exploring deeper meanings and emotions such as anxiety and depression.

The four-and-a-half-minute animation was developed over a five-month period. Six residents from Dower House took part in the project, along with staff members from the Self-harm Service and members of Bethlem Royal Hospital’s Occupational Therapy department.

Residents were encouraged to make their own fictional or biographical stories, and to produce a storyboard.

More than 2000 images were produced over 16 sessions, and edited down into the final film.
