Using personal storytelling and the compelling film, NO LETTING GO, The Youth Mental Health Project seeks to spark community conversations about youth mental health in an effort to increase awareness and understanding, promote mental health literacy and inspire changes that will lead to early identification and intervention. A movie screening brings community members together in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere to tackle a conversation that is often silenced. An award winning film, NO LETTING GO is an honest and compelling story that examines a multitude of important topics, including the toll mental illness takes on an entire family and the impact of society’s judgement.
A screening followed by a discussion, presentation or Q & A facilitated by a speaker trained by The Youth Mental Health Project provides audiences with an opportunity to engage in open and thoughtful dialogue and gives community organizations a chance to inform, educate and engage.
The film’s key messages are hopeful and inspiring:
- Mental health is as important as physical health.
- Mental illness is universal and can occur in any family.
- Mental illness is treatable.
Screenings will also provide an opportunity to connect the audience directly with partner organizations who are working locally, regionally or nationally on the issue and who have already developed paths to increase awareness and improve outcomes.
NO LETTING GO is ideal for:
- Community Administrators
- Law Enforcement
- Elected Officials
