Know my mind has developed a successful drama production: “So you think I’m crazy?” This production uses rap, poetry, dance and music to transport the audience from the streets of London to the secure wing of a psychiatric hospital.

The journey explores the battle of dealing with the stigma of mental health challenges and discrimination.
