BIO:
This past spring, a group of high school students enrolled in a Movies & Medicine elective at Woodlawn School in Davidson, NC created a narrative short predicated on the topic of mental health. Their objective was to produce a film that would dispel the myths and eradicate the stigmas associated with this all-important yet somewhat divisive issue. The students decided that their message – both artistically as well as scientifically – would be conveyed most effectively as a public service announcement. The timing of the kids' PSA seemed rather fortuitous given the recent presidential proclamation calling for May to be recognized as National Mental Health Awareness Month and, more poignantly, given the mental health issues endemic to the Davidson community (a rash of suicides amongst area teens in particular) that have been receiving significant attention as of late. Graduating senior Allie Nagelski; rising senior Sydney Bowman; rising juniors Tyler Ganis, Ciara Conway and Clare MacDonald; and rising sophomores Arianna Hoshino, Taylor Scott and Alivia Weddington worked in collaboration to create this PSA.
