The screening of the films will be followed by discussion on identity, stigma and discrimination.

Naomi Salisbury, development worker at Consultation and Advocacy Promotion Service, said: “Submerged looks at people’s experiences of personality disorder diagnosis. At CAPS we host a collective advocacy project about people’s experience of personality disorder diagnosis.

“Whilst we’ve produced a lot of written information from the project we also wanted to explore other ways of getting information across about people’s experiences.”
