We're so pleased to announce that we have received so much incredible support from the community, including  TED Talk speaker and Mental Health activist Cecilia Mcgough, as well as Michelle Hammer, a advocate living with schizophrenia! We're also in talks with Rethink Mental Illness Charity to endorse our film, they have already responded incredibly well to the message we are delivering with I AM.

We have also been working really hard on our final version of the script and have been liaising closely with the association Students with Psychosis, created by the great Cecilia Mcgough! 

Less than two weeks now before we shoot...! Let's make this happen!
