Directing Change
Jan 5 @ 9:56 pm – Mar 1 @ 10:56 pm

The Directing Change Program & Film Contest is part of Each Mind Matters:  California’s Mental Health Movement.  The program offers young people the exciting opportunity to participate in the movement by creating 60-second films about suicide prevention and mental health that are used to support awareness, education and advocacy efforts on these topics.  Learning objectives surrounding mental health and suicide prevention are integrated into the submission categories of the film contest, giving young people the opportunity to critically explore these topics. Program participants – whether they are making a film, acting as an adult advisor, or judging the films – are exposed to appropriate messaging about these topics, warning signs, how to appropriately respond to someone in distress, where to seek help, as well as how to stand up for others who are experiencing a mental health challenge.   In addition, schools and organizations are offered free prevention programs and educational resources.

 

Intent to Direct Form due by January 15th to win additional prizes!
