Last year, we began filming a video to capture the heart of The Storytellers at three of the schools who won TWLOHA events by participating in the campaign. We wanted to show how talking about mental health positively influences schools and communities and to help people understand that not discussing these very important issues only perpetuates the stigma of mental health. We are honored and moved to be a part of the stories represented in this video, and we hope this gives you a glimpse of how The Storytellers could impact your local high school.
To date, The Storytellers has been in 319 schools worldwide and raised over $150,000 for TWLOHA. Applications for our Fall 2013 term open onAugust 1. You can learn more about what the campaign does and how to get involved here.
