Mindfulness, the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something, is a term which has come to the forefront of western psychology in recent years, as mental health has become a prominent topic of conversation.

We are thrilled to receive a commission by Skill For People ( SFP)  and the NHS to produce a short film in Newcastle about their ‘Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction’ course. A collaborative venture between SFP based in Jesmond and the local Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, the video will uncover what the 12 week course was designed for. The course aims to better equip the individuals with skills to deal with difficult emotions or situations.

The film production will follow up with 4 individuals to discover how their progress has shaped the course from its pilot version ‘Mindfulness for Life’ and how their experience with it has enriched not only their lives; but those around them too.

The film will be launched in early February so until then you can review the first film we made. See film below.
