Hidden in Plain Sight

Description:

Sean Sutcliffe, a Durham College student, took his life in May 2015 because of mental illness. His story has the power to help thousands of people going through a similar struggle get the help they need.
We created a documentary we'd like to share with the world. We want to travel to various post-secondary institutions and share Sean's message with college and university students during Orientation week or Mental Health week so Sean can help those who think they're alone.

Benefit:

Despite leaps and bounds in the mental health discussion, there is still so much more to be done. There is still a stigma surrounding mental illness and we want it to change.

Success Criteria:

We want to start a movement. We will take this message across Ontario, and then across Canada to make sure Sean's story is heard in all corners to help those going through a similar struggle. Starting in Durham Region, where Sean lived, we will take his message to post-secondary institutions and continue throughout the country.
