Shattered Minds: Our Traumatic Wars
Mosaic Films are lead partner on a public engagement project about service-related mental health called Shattered Minds. At the heart of the project are a number of short animated documentaries narrated by Veterans – aimed at addressing the stereotypes, prejudice and misinformation surrounding War Trauma. Each film will be focussed on a different conflict over the past 100 years including the First World War, The Falklands and Iraq and Afghanistan. The key target audiences for the films are Veterans, their families, general health workers and service men and women – as well as the general public.
We are hopeful that these films will be a powerful tool in raising awareness around service, transition and mental health. Current partners include NHS Veterans’ Mental Health services, service charities and a UK-wide network of museums amongst many others. Mosaic Films has a strong track record in producing animated documentaries about the subjective experience of mental health issues including the BAFTA award winning Animated Minds series.
