Black Thrive are still capturing stories


Mental health can be a taboo subject but we are acting it head-on. We are still actively pursuing the filming of people within our community to discover the varying stories of mental ill-health and depression.

If you’d liked to share your story please get on contact with our communications lead Sadiki Harris and we’ll find a way to get filmed in the safest and easiest way possible.


Scared about using your face? No worries, we’re getting better at our animations, check out our donation page to see what we can do.
