Making a Comeback: rebranding mental health

I first met Allanah Mooney, Lionheart Productions, when she was a guest film professional at Frames Film Project when I was the program coordinator there.  I love Allanah’s passion for authentic storytelling and for creating social change through the medium of film.

It also turns out we are neighbors!  I often run into Allanah walking the inimitable Coco:

I was delighted to hear about Allanah’s current EXTRAORDINARY project, Making a Comeback:

A web series to reduce mental health stigma and showcase treatment options for trauma, despair and suicide.

“Making a Comeback” is an educational and inspirational docu-series, and an interactive website with integrated multi-platform content. Digital components include a graphic novel, and workplace and school print and powerpoint packages, 6 second Vine videos, “Mental Health Minute” self-help videos, and “Letter to a Friend” section for the audience to share personal stories and encourage others to “Make a Comeback”. source

Having lost several people in my life to suicide, this project really has a special place in my heart.

Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’ – Mary Anne Radmacher
