Characters: Mr. X's spirit of his past, a stop and search victim, a psychiatric ward patient and a security officer
 
I have been a part Know My Mind since the start of ‘So you think I'm CraZy’ in 2014 and have thoroughly enjoyed my time with a cast I can call my family.
 
The characters I play are one of Mr. X's spirits of his past, a stop and search victim, a psychiatric ward patient and a guard.
 
For me, this play shows the stresses on both sides of the fence, the professionals and service users.
 
We are all walking a very tight rope called life and at any moment ‘it could be you..you or even...you’.
 
The scene that stands out to me that displays exactly this, is when the care coordinator, one of the professionals, displays a high level of stress and depression. She eventually breaks down and comes clean about how she really feels about the health industry and also her own mental ill health.
