We took seven young people over the half term and embarked on a massive film project to highlight the need for more focus on mental health, we didn’t use knifes, we didn’t need guns, all we needed was a passion to change the narrative and a drive for change. We chose to address the mental health issue. So many young people are displaying early signs of mental health challenges and it this that has inspired the making of the short film SICK.
To reduce stigma, mental health needs to be seen as something that concerns us all
Using film as a platform offers a chance to bring mental health into the spotlight
Discussing a film can help people with mental health problems to broach difficult subjects
Screenings of our films that focus on mental health are used to foster discussion, create empathy and reduce stigma
