Working with Mind in Haringey

Take A Minute, Save A Life was developed in partnership with Mind in Haringey to explore the issue and impact of male suicide. Following the launch, a series of workshops took place to which people with lived experience were invited to tell their stories and explore issues and attitudes around the subjects of mental health and suicide. These  workshops culminated in the development of this this unique performance piece to be showcased at the Pleasance Theatre on 12 October.
