There will be a celebratory launch of our national film on youth mental health: “Youth Voices, Youth Hope” on Tuesday, May 3 at Lula Lounge from 7:00 pm. The film is a 45 minute documentary film involving over 100 students and young adults from Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario and prominent Canadians and mental health advocates including Clara Hughes, Mary Walsh, Seamus O’Regan, Amelia Curran, Orlando DaSilva and others. Music for the film was contributed by Shay Esposito, an 18 year old Edmonton youth with lived experience of mental health, the Amabile Choirs of London, Ontario, and Jim Papoulis, world renowned composer and conductor based in New York. Newfoundland’s talented filmmaker, Roger Maunder, worked together with film students, young filmmakers and the Chief Creative Production Manager, Sheryl Boswell, to create this film that we hope will be a call to action on youth mental health.
We will have a community fair at the event with information from youth mental health organizations, student groups and community organizations, as well as a deejay. Please let us know if you would like to have a table.
Please join us to celebrate the launching of our film. We all have a role in suicide prevention. We can all make a difference.
