Each Mind Matters

-Presents-

The Directing Change Program and Film Contest 2015

 

ABOUT DIRECTING CHANGE

Students throughout California were invited to Direct Change by submitting 60 second films in two categories: suicide prevention and ending the silence about mental illness. A total of 420 films were received, representing 1226 students from 112 high schools and 7 University of California campuses. Entries were judged by over 200 volunteer experts in mental health and suicide prevention, members of the media and professionals in writing and film-making. For more information, visit: directingchange.org

 

Directing Change is part of Each Mind Matters: California's Mental Health Movement. The program is one of several statewide efforts to prevent suicide, reduce stigma and discrimination related to mental illness, and to promote the mental health and wellness of students. These initiatives are funded by counties through the Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63) and administered by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), and organization of county governments working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
