Three women photographers present their powerful projects on mental well being opening a discussion on race, austerity, marginalisation and immigration.

Marie Smith will talk about Whispering for help , a series which consists of annotated portrait project with women of colour aged 18 years and above. The project involves recording women of colour experience with mental health, a mixture of black and white film portraits and hand written texts by the sitter. This project will seek to create a series that explores experiences of mental health services in UK as well as providing a platform for dialogue to dismantle the stigma of mental health in BAME communities.

Nieves Mingueza will present The malady of Suzanne, a poetic documentary project. By combining found archives with her own photography work in Vietnam, she is exploring the story of a Vietnamese female with mental issues in 70’s London. This is an on-going project about the complex relationship between memory, immigration, mental health and human conflicts.

Sue Shorvon, her photo artwork aims to encourage self-exploration of people's perceptions and assumptions, as a way forward to destigmatizing mental illness in society.
