A film by Peel District School Board.

Adolescence is hard enough without the extra challenges of depression and anxiety. Often a simple act of reaching out to show you understand can give someone hope. This amazing short film shows the powerful effects that can occur when students, parents and administration step up and stand up for those who need an extra boost.

    Haunting music and outstanding film editing. How simple it is up simply be there for another if we are in the moment and present. It isn't difficult if we slow down and look around. Beautiful piece.

    It is important that people and young people in particular,see that they are not alone. That we all feel lonely and insecure at times in our life and we can support eachother.

  • Barbara

    People supporting one another is hope-inspiring for me. We can use our voice, and we can use our EARS: listening is at least as important.

    The nurturing done by peer groups and teachers to help. Respect shown to children.

    This is a powerful message. Stand up, you may be someone's saving grace.

    The song is powerful and the call is bold. We have a beautiful youth on the way.

  • Mama Bear

    I was going to post this on my facebook, but decided to check the number in the video first and got a message stating, "We're sorry, this number is not available in your calling area." Ouch.

    YES, take that ONE moment to Notice. To see someone's pain and SAY or DO something. Simple words, a tender touch, validation, can make ALL the difference. BE There. HUGS and <3 from my heart to yours.

  • If you or someone you know is struggling, find support.
  • So many people who suffer are invisible. There is shame and fear on their side, and often indifference or ignorance on our part. You probably don’t have to look far to see a classmate or student who is suffering. How can you stand up for them?
