When it comes to mental health, you’re never alone.

High school students create mental health video

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

You could say that a silver lining of the pandemic has been raising the conversation around mental health. At the beginning of this year, myself and a handful of senior high school students in Oakville, outside of Toronto, came together to write, direct and produce a four-minute video to share how we’re feeling. We focused on a few different areas of mental health. With each one, we consulted fellow students who had experienced it for themselves. The video is on YouTube and has been shared within our school and in the greater community.

As a young filmmaker heading off to study film and television after graduating, I hope we can continue to remind everyone that when it comes to mental health, you’re never alone.
