Addresses important issues around understanding mental ill-health and common misconceptions. Can we really understand the private hell of such conditions? I liked the five "quick fixes" (not) ... however I do I like the five reasons for living. Choose life. Tackling stigma around mental ill-health remains an on-going challenge. I think we need to work much more with our young people. The film brings out the value of peer support and I believe there is very much a role for peer educators here. Congratulations to Ashley, all the cast and the production team for bravely and sensitively producing this film. I hope it can reach wide audiences perhaps through festivals such as the annual Mental Health Arts and Film Festival in Scotland.

So relateable, If you have suffered from depression you will really pick up on all the small details, this film shows depression as the physical and mental illness that it is, not just somebody suffering from low mood. Great for awareness.
