director: Tim den Besten
original title: 100 dagen in je hoofd
running time: 50 min.
synopsisTim den Besten and Nicolaas Veul spend 100 days interning at different departments in a mental health facility. Along trying to help those in need, the pair learn about what has led to some of the patients’ issues, the variety of ways available to help people going through mental health struggles, and whether the label of “madness” is helpful when everyone struggles.
“Programs like this help a lot. I think it's good to show that it's normal and that we're not 'crazy'. This way we can remove prejudices." (Nienke van Oosten, a patient of a psychiatric clinic suffering from depression)
