Web (Full Length) – 2015

As a young woman I spent five years in and out of psychiatric hospitals. This was one of the most intense and profound experiences of my life.
– Mary O'Hagan
The expert take on someone else's experiences are at odds with how most people would define their experiences. It medicalises feelings, emotions, and thought process, reduces someone's experience of a very distressing time to labels, which for some people can help, but for a lot of people doesn’t. For Mary O’Hagan it definitely did not.
– Director Nicola Castle on The Wireless, 21 July 2015
