Local Distribution
As part of the Mind Millenium award, the film (video format) was distributed free throughout Nottingham and Sheffield to acute acute wards, carers groups, day centres, voluntary groups and libraries to be made available for loan. If you live in these areas you could contact your local library to borrow a copy or ask at a local mental health centre. Some of these centres including Nottingham’s Libraries also hold copies of the DVD.
 
Testimonials
 
This video, under thirty minutes, makes good viewing for sufferers and carers alike. It is packed full of anecdotes and poems which are wonderfully illustrated with hugely creative pictures and animations.  It has powerful messages, some aimed specifically at carers while others, aimed at sufferers will also convey poignant meanings to their carers.
 
…..You must try to get this video and watch it over and over.  It is too good to miss.

I was struck by the portrayal of deep personal feelings through the use of pictures and poetry. I will probably use this for teaching purposes both at undergraduate and post graduate level.

I saw the video twice last weekend. It really left a lasting impression. It is absolutely fantastic. It is an incredible achievement

Both reviews guess at how Queenie is made. One say straw, the other thinks paper mache . She is an embroidered doll.
