Voices of Sainte-Anne

For a year, from November 2018 to October 2019, I followed people with mental illnesses in sector 15 of the Sainte-Anne psychiatric hospital in Paris. I met them during their hospitalization, in a moment of crisis, and I accompanied them until they returned home, when they left home or clinic.

This report addresses two axes: on the one hand, that of the destigmatization of mental illnesses and, on the other hand, that of the psychosocial support of patients towards reintegration.

 

Report co-produced by Polka Magazine and Liberation.
