Helping Hand

It’s about this young adult named Deangelo who’s experiencing depression. He pushes people away not wanting to waste people’s time and believes he probably deserves to experience these symptoms. There’s a realization towards the end that changes this. It relates back to the required content since it goes over mental health and what many people experience. This feeling of self doubt in yourself or feeling as if your not important. No one should have to feel that way.

It all starts with you

This is a story about how a girl’s bestfriend began to notice that she started acting strangely and unlike anything he has ever seen before but starts to realize that he can connect the signs she is giving to those of which who are suicidal.

Taking Action

Our film submission is all about taking action for mental health. The opening scene includes the lime green ribbon which is the symbol for mental health month. We feel that when our classmates are suffering, we need to take action to help them get the help they need.

ADHD? We can help

A high school student struggling with ADHD discovers a support group that is able to help him. ADHD

is portrayed as a physical person to represent the student’s changing attention span.

Reaching Beyond

In this entry our video shows you the importance of reaching out (like the title suggests) and follows the story of a boy who on the outside seams happy but only him and the people who care about him know his true feelings and intentions and in so leads to a point which things get so bad but before anything bad can happen to him his friends step in teaching us its better to always reach out.

Reach Out

My animation, “Reach Out”, is about a person reaching out to another person who is in a dark place due to stresses and anxieties, and brings them into the light and good of the world. I drew this animation because one thing I want to see more of in the world is people reaching out to others just checking if their okay. As humans, it is our nature to just stay centered around ourselves, but in reality we need each other to make things work, and one way we can help others is just by checking in on others, and asking them if they are okay.

You’re Not Alone

Millions of teens, including many at our own school, struggle with their mental health and we want to tell them that they are not alone. With this video, we want to rid the stigma that surrounds mental health problems, and let them know that they are entitled to all the support they can get. The monthly prompt was taking action for mental health, so we showed a few actions that individuals can do, and listed additional resources to support them.

Mental Health Matters

My entry is titled, “Mental Health Matters.” My entry demonstrates that life can be extremely busy, and many things can be overwhelming. Many people don’t realize what may be going through a person’s mind everyday. A person’s mind can get so full that it turns into a bunch of negative thoughts, that are running through your mind. Deep down that someone can conquer what may be going on mentally by listening to their heart, and going to find someone trusted to talk to about what they are feeling inside.

Grow

I know that a lot of people experience mental health differently and the things holding people back from being happy can be one thing or many. People can’t just “be happy”, it takes more than that. The person in my drawing is holding a watering can and the flower on there is meant to represent someone’s mental health and the person allowing it to grow and flourish. Drawing this made me really happy and I think that a lot of people feel held back by certain things, but once people realize whatever it is that will make them happy they can grow

light and dark side of self

My submission shows how mental health can change daily. You can do the same thing everyday but you can still feel like you’re in different worlds. Every day you can feel like you lost a running out of time and your going nowhere but other days you feel free and you have a purpose and you feel the time is right.
