The creators of BAFTA award-winning game Hellblade tried to do just that, and worked with scientists and those living with psychosis to explore new and positive ways of representing the mental condition. Join creative director Tameem Antoniades and psychiatrist Paul Fletcher in conversation with neuroscientist and British Academy Fellow Uta Frith to find out how.
