More about the film:
The 30-minute film follows four young people from Wisconsin navigating mental health challenges. They’ve endured assault, bullying, incarceration and discrimination. Some thought about suicide. But through the pain they found support from family, friends and strangers. They found strength within themselves. They’re sharing their stories to let others know they’re not alone and that healing is possible.
The film is an extension of USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin’s Kids in Crisis series, which over the past three years has uncovered rising suicide rates and gaps in mental health care in Wisconsin.
