Breaking The Silence (Mental Health Documentary) | Real Stories

Breaking The Silence (Mental Health Documentary) | Real Stories

This documentary gets to the heart of suicide in Northern Ireland and examines the human debris of the family and friends left behind. Breaking The Silence is a sensitive and powerful portrait of the trauma faced by families in the aftermath of suicide, and the journey towards coming to terms with this deep, personal tragedy. Each story builds towards its awful yet inevitable conclusion and, by allowing interviewees the opportunity to talk through their own painful stories, the film also helps to prove that those left behind can ultimately travel the long road of healing. The film challenges the audience to consider why such a potent stigma still surrounds suicide and mental health issues, and also looks at the important work being done by the Niamh Louise Foundation – which is made up of individuals who have been similarly affected … Continue reading

Struggling with Severe Mental Illness: The Story of Maisie

Struggling with Severe Mental Illness: The Story of Maisie

Sally Burke is a mother from Hull. But to see her daughter – 13-year-old Maisie – she is forced to make a 118-mile roundtrip to Sheffield, where Maisie is currently sectioned under the Mental Health Act and receiving treatment for paranoid schizophrenia. A national shortage of hospital beds means people in crisis are being shunted all over the UK for hospital care. This, tragically, includes children. If troubled young people having to wait for two years for mental health treatment wasn’t bad enough, that they can often only be admitted to psychiatric wards that are miles away from their homes and families is even more terrifying. The figures surrounding the mental health of young Brits are alarming. The number of children being admitted to hospital for self-harm is at a five-year high. Admissions of girls aged 10-14 have increased by … Continue reading

Mental Health Lesson – “Tennis Ball Toss” Resiliency

Mental Health Lesson – “Tennis Ball Toss” Resiliency

A “fly on the wall” look into our classroom. Full mental health lesson included! RESILIENCE: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. Notice the ups and downs of classroom energy throughout the activity. The group of students were presented with a challenge– watch and listen in as the class battles failure to finally achieve success. The tennis ball toss stirred the classroom with just a bit of movement to boost brain activity.

This also helped create social connectedness, which is a huge piece in a person’s developing mental health. You’ll hear this group socialize throughout the activity.
