At ProPsych, we believe that solutions must include the input of young people which has led us to initiate this short film competition exclusively for Australian and New Zealand students in years 7-12. This competition aims to get young people involved! It also aims to showcase the talent and creativity of students whilst raising awareness and eradicating stigma surrounding Mental Health.
Judging will be split into two categories:
- Juniors (years 7-9)
- Seniors (years 10-12)
Entries should address this year's theme: Eyes Wides Open
You might have noticed a couple of changes. We have ditched the entry fee to streamline things for everyone, and we have changed the entry date to September in order to give students and teachers more time - media teacher may wish to use Mentalicious as a curriculum option.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
- If you wish to submit multiple entries as a school (eg if your whole class is doing this as an assignment) please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please read terms and conditions carefully. All entries strictly subject to T&Cs
- This is a social enterprise venture of Propsych. Encouraging Young People to get involved in a Mental Health Revolution!
Mental Health involves our emotional, psychological, physical and social well-being. The quality of our Mental Health affects the way we engage in everyday life; in relationships, academic/work performance, how we handle stress and our contribution to our communities.
Mental Health problems are common, and they can happen to any of us over the course of our lives, impacting our thoughts, moods and behaviours.
Fortunately, help is available and we can engage in different practices or behaviours to support our Mental Health. Sometimes it’s just a conversation with someone we care about that can make a difference!
We want to hear your ideas about the prevention, treatment or stigma surrounding Mental Health issues and also your ideas about what the future of mental health might look like.
