Football, Schizophrenia and Me w/t (1 x 60′) – This film will tell the story of an extraordinary football league, in which every player suffers from a mental health problem – be it OCD, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Following a number of key characters over one season, from training sessions to the hotly-contested end-of-year final, we’ll see how taking part in this unique league changes the lives of players for good. This film will challenge the way we see mental health disorders in young men.
