Overcoming Barriers Barnsley MIND Video

Rotherham and Barnsley MIND in association with Northern College have produced a short humorous video depicting the first visit to college for a student who has mental health problems. The video, featuring members of MIND and Northern College students, shows, through Michelle's eyes, her first few hours at college and some of the barriers she overcomes.

This film was a small part of the MHFE virtual secondee project and sought to involve learners with mental health problems in identifying and overcoming barriers to returning to learning and encourage others to do so.
