#LifeUnfiltered is a short film made by young people, for young people to raise awareness of mental health.
This project was a 6 month collaboration between a group of 25 young people, supported by Healthwatch Dorset, Dorset Mental Health Forum, Dorset Mind, Dorset Healthcare NHS Trust, Poole Youth Forum and Bournemouth University.
One young person, Siobhan, describes why she took part in the project “For me, working on this film was a way to not only get to know new people and gain confidence, but a way to make sure fewer people end up so mentally unwell that they end up in psychiatric hospitals. I want young people to be able to reach out and get the help they need before things in their lives deteriorate even more.”
The young participants were involved in every step of the process – from the initial workshops, through to interviewing film companies, planning and shooting the film itself, editing and promotion. The film was launched on World Mental Health Day and has over 12,000 views on youtube so far.
