Mental health education is more important than EVER

Hi there!

MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION. With unprecedented increases in social isolation and economic hardship driven by this pandemic, we know that mental health support and education are more important than ever.

DISTANCE LEARNING. Since late winter, when social isolation kicked in, Unsilence has seen significant jumps in requests for Unsilence live online programs and in traffic to our learning experiences online - which are always free and open access. Distance learning will be with us for a while.

INTERACTIVE. Our Unsilence choose-your-own-pathway stories and features, like TOMORROW, THE 19TH WINDOW, and OXYGEN, help young people, educators, and members of the public explore themes like suicide, intergenerational trauma, and emotional responses to violence. Mental health is a common theme across Unsilence learning experiences. Learners explore questions about trauma, depression, and illness as they connect to different forms of violence and oppression, including anti-Black racism, sexual violence, immigration rights, and LGBTQ+ experiences.

THANK YOU. We are so grateful for your support. Our work at Unsilence is only possible because you believe in what we do.

TOMORROW. If you haven't explored it yet, check out our Unsilence feature TOMORROW - an original interactive story, based on real events, that helps young people, educators, and parents talk about mental health and suicide. The 'choose-your-own-pathway' structure draws learners in, and each decision point highlights the complexities of mental health in school settings. The feature is accompanied by a free educator guide and testimonies about the aftermath of suicide from a teacher's perspective (INTO MY ARMS) and a parent's perspective (BRIAN), as well as poetry from a sibling's perspective (THE S WORD).

TODAY. Thank you again for your support. If you are able, please consider making a contribution today to support our work. We can't unsilence without you!

With gratitude,

Danny
