MENTAL HEALTH SHORTS - WHEN I WORRY ABOUT THINGS
Commissioned through the BBC, and made in co-production with Mosaic Films, When I Worry about Things is a collection of short films exploring common mental health issues faced by young children around the ages of 8-13. Using personal testimonies of their experiences and path to recovery, they explore a range of topics including OCD, Depression, Anorexia, Panic, being bullied, and being a bully.
Mixing animation techniques, we illustrate the turmoil these characters describe versus their real life experiences in vivd sequences to help young people empathise more intuitively.
These shorts are now used in classrooms to educate young children of how to identify and seek help if they face similar issues.
