Clapperboard UK is a charitable, non-profit making organisation and film production agency led by young people from script to screen.

Clapperboard’s Re-arrange Film and Media Project formed in October 2014, when a group of young adults (14-28 years of age) who have mental health issues got together from the success of their award winning short Oddy, they have produced two short film (5 Faces and Poetic Reflections!) both on ‘personal reflections’ of mental health.  One of the films (Collection of Poems) was filmed by Re-arrange for and in partnership with GAIN (Global Arts Initiative Network) A BMEA project in Liverpool.

Michael Crilly, deputy director for people participation at Mersey Care NHS Trust said: “Mersey Care is delighted to be working in partnership with Clapperboard, enabling young people to explore their own mental health and well-being in the context of their own contemporary culture. Recovery is a journey that is all about offering hope, control and opportunity. In this project our young people are able to tell their story in such a way that all three elements become a living and powerful reality”.
