To celebrate Halloween, we gave our teens makeup and cameras. Did you know that over half of adolescents struggle with low self-esteem and negative body image? Brighton5 is working to change that. We hope you enjoy our film that celebrates positive body image. Happy Halloween!
Brighton5 is a reaction to the growing problems young people are facing – there is a mental health crisis that is showing no sign of going away. It is a crisis that is particularly affecting girls – one in four has depression before they are 14.
Brighton5 is bringing local teenagers together to create
and produce video content that will be distributed through schools and colleges. Teens will share their stories in a positive, creative and safe environment to gain an understanding of issues that affect their mental health such as device addiction, self harm and negative body image. They will learn skills in production, animation and music. They will build relationships and work with expert adult mentors. We are determined to make positive change.
