Mind – But I’m here for mental health

Tyneside Mind have produced a powerful new film about the Work Capability Assessment (WCA). In the film, actors depict the experiences of people who are supported by Tyneside Mind and have been through the WCA.

Many people find the process of going through the WCA difficult and distressing, and this is very much reflected in the film.

The film contains references to suicide which you may find triggering, please watch carefully.

Many people continue to find the WCA process stressful, insensitive, inaccurate and unfair. It needs to change.

  1. “Many people continue to find the WCA process stressful, insensitive, inaccurate and unfair. It needs to change.”

    it’s also illegal as it was found to discriminate against people with mental health problems by Appeal Court Judges (again) – nothing has happened to change it though, which says what about the DWP, Smith and this government???????????????????????????????

  3. After watching this very emotional films I have ever seen . The D.W.P. are out of touch with the people of this country. These people that are carrying out these assessments are not qualified to be doing this job . Mr Duncan the minister for health that is behind these cuts should in my opinion be charged with Murder for every poor sole that takes there life’s due to all benefits being stopped .
    I think it is about time Britain as a new 3rd World country should stand up to these people as this can NOT be allowed to carry one . How many must take there own life’s before they stand up and take notice
