"Our Turn to Talk" Movie & Discussion

Teenagers are putting an end to mental health stigma. To do it, they’re telling their own stories – from anxiety and depression to the impacts of racism, social media and the pandemic – in this documentary film. A clinical presenter hosts and leads a post-viewing Q&A.

Our Approach

Adolescence can bring difficult times for teens and tweens—and for the adults who care for them. We’re here to give parents and caregivers the ideas, strategies, and tactics needed to support their children through the challenges they face on a daily basis and the impact those challenges have on their mental health. Our programs provide the language and understanding to communicate and promote mental wellness through many stages of youth development.

“The information shared was relevant, timely, and well received. Several parents commented it was the best presentation they had ever experienced and would encourage fellow parents to attend. Because of Carl’s honesty and bravery in sharing his story, parents were able to share their own struggles and those of their children. Thank you for another wonderful MYM presentation.”

— Adrianna Savarese, School Counselor
