A mental health awareness documentary made by a co-founder of Shaftesbury’s Headstrong project has been praised by the actor Stephen Fry.

Alex’s company Playmotion has produced the Blindside series of short documentaries. They feature footage of the Dodgers Sevens rugby players talking about their mental health experiences. The films aim to remove the stigma and break down barriers surrounding mental wellbeing.

Alex explains why he’s so proud of this project and why he feels protective towards the lads for their openness and honesty.
