Mental Health in Prisons

The Problem:

NHSU wanted to enable and encourage prison officers to talk about mental distress within the prison population.

The Solution:

We created a series of hard-hitting dramas to prompt prison offers to talk about their own experiences. This audience can tend to ‘bottle up’ emotions, so our films encouraged them to share their own stories and open up about how it made them feel. This helped nurture an environment of mutual support and empathy amongst colleagues to improve wellbeing.
