The Spark (full interview)
Monday, 6 December 2021 - 13 minutes
'The Spark Documentary', sponsored by the IoM Arts Council, is a mini-series that aims to give hope and help to sufferers of depression and those who support and care for them.
Masterminded by Jenny Derbyshire and produced by Dark Avenue Film, the Spark has interviews with people from all walks of life - therapists, professionals and fellow sufferers as well as quotes that may be helpful or inspiring. The music played within the documentary has been created by local artists, some of whom have struggled with depression themselves.
Christy DeHaven caught up with Patrick and Bethany from Dark Avenue Films and Jenny herself, whose hope for the documentary is that it encourages people to discuss their mental health and to shine a light on the help and support available on the Isle of Man.
