Darren’s Recovery Story

Poet and photographer, Darren Pindred created, edited and completed his own short film to tell his story. Darren’s aim is to inspire others and evidence that people can and do recover from mental health issues.

“Whilst emotionally draining I thought it was essential for me to share a small part of my story to show that living with mental health problems isn’t easy but there are creative things you can do to help positively focus yourself. It’s not a cure but it helps and if in doing this it saves a life from being lost then that’s a major accomplishment.”
