Mindreel, the database of films about mental health, has been completely overhauled and redesigned to firmly establish its place as an important and invaluable educational resource.
It now hosts just over 100 films, and there are a few more in the pipeline. The new features include:
- Improved searching
- Browsing by topic and type of film.
Visit Mindreel and let us know what you think.
Mindreel is freely available to all but registered users may comment on films and 'favourite' films to make them easier to find later. Additionally, if you are a professional working in education or mental health you can register for an 'academic' account, which allows you to download certain films for use offline, making it easier to utilise them in teaching and instructional environments.
Mindreel is an initiative to create a valuable learning resource using films that address a wide range of mental health issues.
The films featured on Mindreel were selected in conjunction with the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival. Most are films that were submitted to the Festival, and many are award winners.
The Mindreel project is led by Iriss in partnership with the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival and University of Strathclyde.
