The Hume YAC have conducted close to 400 consultations in which identified mental health and bullying as a few of the key areas of concern for young people in Hume. A goal of the Hume YAC was to not only create awareness but inspire change, which led to the production of two short films ‘Mental Health Bar’ and ‘Say Good-bye to Standing By’. The Hume YAC wanted to highlight how dynamic mental health can be and hoped to capture mental health itself rather than mental illness. The Hume YAC wanted to bring your attention to how seeking support can really help when life gets overwhelming.
