Putting the ‘Hope’ into Mental Health

Six short films exploring the theme of hope are to be launched on the run-up to World Mental Health Day.

Led by Dundee charity Front Lounge, the films mark the second phase of the charity’s Foolish Optimism project which, last year, saw the launch of a film and 26-stop national roadshow touring aimed at sparking more discussion of mental health throughout Scotland.

With the Foolish Optimism film focused on the harsh realities of mental health challenges, the working group decided to switch the focus to hope as World Mental Health Day approaches on 10 October 2019.

They have since made a suite of six short films – Foolish Optimism: Hope in Action – one to be released each week culminating on 10 October, exploring the positive steps young people can take to feel better, and manage their conditions more effectively.

The second film, shot in Eden Locke, Edinburgh, will be released on Monday 9 September 2019, on the eve of World Suicide Prevention Day. Entitled ‘Things to Live For’, the film captures Edinburgh-based Daniella James and her friend Andrew Compston having an everyday about the strategies to ‘keep going’ and the opportunities to stay positive in everyday life.
