And This Time It's Personal

At the very moment when the government is reducing the ability of NHS mental health practicioners to serve those who are unwell, they are investing public money in dubious mental health programs. Unemployed people are being coerced by sanctions into compliance. 

The government is trying to convince us that unemployment is a mental illness rather than a result of adverse economic conditions created by capital. WellRedFilms explores the underpinnings of the psycho-coercive practices endorsed by the government with leading researchers and the Mental Health Resistance Network.
