this is my brave
While doing some research, I stumbled upon This Is My Brave Australia, a mental health awareness and advocacy not-for-profit focusing on inclusivity and progress. What particularly got my attention is their Film Festival taking place in Canberra next Saturday 13th October.
The festival will showcase a selection of films made by Australian film makers (as well as some international films) that focus on a variety of topics associated with mental health:
- Provide an inspiring voice for social justice and human rights for people with mental illness
- Highlight positive contributions made by mental health recipients
- Fight stigma and defy stereotypes associated with mental illness
- Share real-life stories of people with mental health concerns
It’s very exciting to see creatives talking about mental health, as well as organisations talking about creatives talking about mental health. The love spreads….
