Mental wellbeing is an extremely important issue with young people, and film can be a wonderful tool for helping them explore their feelings and broach difficult subjects. Thought-provoking films can allow young people to discuss the many difficult and complex issues associated with mental wellbeing in an accessible way. Using film can help develop emotional understanding and resilience, while the act of filmmaking itself can provide a powerful means of self-expression and creative outlet.
Below you can find details of all of our recent filmmaking projects across the UK addressing mental wellbeing, including our continued support from ICAP Charity Day for a new youth mental wellbeing filmmaking project, announced in celebration of 2019's World Mental Health Day (10 October).
