I directed this online campaign for Headstrong. We know that the presence of One Good Adult in a young person’s life has a positive influence on their mental health. Be it a parent, teacher, football coach or school bus driver, we all have a role in supporting the young people around us.
Teachers play a significant and valuable role in young people’s life.This short film features young people speaking to camera on what their One Good Teachers have meant to them.
