Jess Chooses Life
'Jess Chooses Life' is a 35 minute play written by well-known acting identity Alan Hopgood AM. This play has been endorsed by Mental Health Victoria.
‘Jess Chooses Life’ addresses youth suicide in the online era and how young people can reach breaking point without their parents realising. The story follows Jess, whose parents find suicidal comments on her computer when she climbs out her bedroom window. Jess eventually discusses her concerns with them, such as bullying and her friend Lindy’s suicide. The message is one of understanding and hope.
This production will be followed by a Q&A from a panel of Mental Health Professionals.
