Hands that save minds – Fighting mental health issues through art

The painter Salvador Dalí said “A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others”. The protagonists of this short documentary are an inspiration for their artistic pieces, but also for their personal fight. We discover the story of two men who have struggled with mental health and who have found their retreat in art.

In the Psychiatric Hospital of Thessaloniki, in the “Green Team” (ΜΟΝΑΔΑ ΠΡΑΣΙΝΟΥ), participants are able to create their artistic projects and to shape their stories of life. They use their hands to give life to pieces of wood and to play music and write their own songs.
