High School Students! Have you identified an adult advisor at your school?  This could be a counselor or teacher. The advisor does not need to have knowledge of or expertise in film making or the subject matters (suicide prevention and mental health). The role of the student advisor is to review the film to ensure the content is appropriate for a general viewing audience and to obtain and submit the entry form, release and copyright forms on behalf of the student(s).

The contest is part of statewide efforts to prevent suicide, reduce stigma and discrimination related to mental illness, and to promote the mental health and wellness of students. These initiatives are funded by the Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63) and administered by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), an organization of county governments working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
