According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 50 percent of mental health issues begin by age 14. 75 percent have begun by age 24. Unfortunately, many young people do not seek the support they need when struggling with mental health issues for fear of being labeled. Shine is a film designed to promote discussion about mental health and begin to break the silence that prevents people from seeking support. We hope that you are inspired to host a screening, facilitate a discussion, or simply reach out to someone you know who may be struggling.
