A Powerful Suicide Prevention Movie Screening with panel discussion to follow the movie.
Teenagers are putting an end to mental health stigma. To do it, they’re telling their own stories—unfiltered—in the documentary film and teen-hosted podcast series Our Turn to Talk. From skyrocketing rates of anxiety and depression to the impacts of racism, social media, and the pandemic, their struggles and triumphs carry a powerful message: Storytelling saves lives. That truth is what motivated high school senior Anastasia Vlasova to start a podcast. And audiences join her on her journey as she shares her story and travels across the country to give other teens a chance to share theirs. Real, raw, and life-affirming, Our Turn to Talk comes at a time when it’s needed most. It’s become a defining film, podcast series, and impact project to normalize conversations about mental health with young people and all those who care about them.
A film by Beth Murphy and Patrice Howard.
