The film features the Bafta winning actor Adam Deacon, DJ Trevor Nelson and Classical Pianist James Rhodes who have either a first hand experience of mental health or a friend who does.

Brent Mind service users Carol, who lives with schizophrenia, and Emi, a teenage girl who has previously self-harmed, also both talk bravely and emotively about their experiences with mental health in the film.
