The Wick List

Viewing ‘A Dark Mind’, Southbank Centre

Never has mental health been more in the spotlight. As the world lurched from one lockdown to another, loneliness, burnout and grief, as well as rising anxiety, sleeplessness and stress were thrust centre stage. The positive? We’re talking more openly about it.

Leading the way is A Dark Mind, a documentary which seeks to remove the taboo around mental health in the Black community, challenge stigmas and initiate change. Director and producer Dami Adeyeye interviews six individuals from within the Black community about their experiences and journeys so far, while four Black mental health professionals share their insights. Topics tackled include suicide, depression, bipolar and sexual violence — but importantly, ways of seeking help, advice and support too.

The screening will be followed by a talk with the director and Natalie Creary, programme director for Lambeth-based mental health charity Black Thrive. Ticket holders can also take part in a short meditative session run by mental health practitioner Hari Sewell and the film’s score composer Cephas Azariah.
