An original poem that was written by me Maggy Sessions, I never truly understood the meaning of this poem until entering this competition.
A young teen has gone through some trouble in school for a very long time. He is about to record his death and share it to the world because he feels that NO ONE cares. Suddenly his fellow family and friends start texting what’s wrong and try to stop the path he’s walking on. He tries to ignore but he’s shocked that people actually care. As he sits in a dark room, feeling lonely. Could there be another way to stop this?
This video is about showing people that you are not alone. High school can be stressful but there will always be people who care and who support you. Life after school can also be daunting so it's also important to remember you are never alone. It's an uplifting film because being around people who care about you is the best feeling.

Mental health is an important aspect of everybody's lives, targeting people of all ages, groups or class. This short film explores the consequences mental illnesses have on a variety on youths.
