This PowerPoint presentation and teachers’ notes document will guide and support your learners through the process of making their own mental health short film using Into Film’s Think, Plan, Create, Exhibit and Evaluate model. 

Young people will engage with film and filmmaking with increased confidence in order to articulate ideas about what mental health means to them.

This resource is part of our second program of youth-made short films which explore themes surrounding mental health and wellbeing.

Both Moving Minds projects to date were made possible with the funds raised at ICAP Charity Days.
