our Projects

documentary

Our documentary is our most impactful project. Our film will be accessible to people across the globe. Our goal is that those who watch and our film will come away enhanced with a new understanding of mental health. They will gain practical, useful knowledge that will help them take immediate, actionable steps to handle mental health for themselves and for others. They will be given the vital tools to be able to save the lives of those who would otherwise be shamed into silence, and even perhaps for their own lives.
