Cloud Nine – Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival

On 12 October 2017, Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival showed a documentary film on postnatal depression at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.

After her daughter was born, documentary maker Anne-Marieke Graafmans ended up in a postnatal depression. She lost herself and fought against her grief and not loving her baby. The outside world didn’t know about this struggle, only those close to her. The taboo surrounding postnatal depression stopped her from talking about it. To create more attention and understanding for this subject, she decided to make a film about it. Cloud Nine is a documentary about being in a postnatal depression told from the perspective of four young families. An intimate and candid film about what it’s like to have to deal with this.

Following the film there was a panel discussion and questions from the audience. The discussion was chaired by Rachael Hood, Mental Health Foundation Scotland and the panel comprised of Jackie Walker, Manager, Bluebell Perinatal Service and Trustee of Maternal Mental Health Scotland and Clare Thompson, Change Agent and Trustee of Maternal Mental Health Scotland.
