- PAM N. (High School Counselor)

“Our Turn To Talk is a ground-breaking documentary for GenZ. There's more and more evidence that storytelling is connected to better mental health outcomes and that storytelling really can save lives. It's a must-watch film to help start this important conversation in our homes, classrooms and communities."

- JENNIFER MARSHALL, Co-Founder, This Is My Brave

“Such a big part of our world as school counselors is how much we help students with coping. And that's why I love this film because it really gives them a head start... "

Here's what other High School Counselors are saying:

 

“This is incredibly powerful. I am a high school counselor and my department struggles with breaking down the stigma all the time. It is REAL. I so appreciate this movie using youth voices and youth stories."

 

"The film is beautiful and brilliantly done. It should be incorporated into schools."

"I'm so excited that this documentary is out there."

"THIS IS EXCELLENT. I am bringing it to our school."

"Our Turn to Talk shows us that it is not a sign of weakness or personal failure to talk about our mental health issues. This is a crisis that can’t be ignored and we all need to pay attention to those struggling around us to support one another. No one deserves to suffer in silence."

-Sharon Shapiro, Trustee and Community Liaison, Ruderman Family Foundation

OUR TURN TO TALK is co-produced by Principle Pictures and WETA and is inspired by This is My Brave, an organization that uses performing arts to fight stigma around mental health challenges and addiction, founded by Jennifer Marshall.
