Darwin Centre: My Illness

My Illness conveys a message of hope to others who are struggling with their mental health. We are pleased to launch the film as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2021.

Cambridge Junction’s Creative Learning team worked with young people at the Darwin Centre, a specialist residential unit near Cambridge for young people with complex mental health challenges.

Using beautiful and thought-provoking imagery, they talk about their journeys with an illness ‘that can’t be seen’. They speak openly about their experience of staying at the Darwin Centre – how they learnt to understand themselves; how they found ways to manage their struggles; and how there can be light at the end of the tunnel.
