'Inside Your headspace' Film Project
headspace Noarlunga, along with Adelaide’s Media Resource Centre, brings you ‘Inside Your headspace’ A Film Project series of short films that aim to tackle stigma and raise awareness about issues that young people face everyday. The team at headspace Noarlunga and the Youth Reference Group, worked with the Media Resource Centre to produce these films. The films were showcased at the Adelaide Fringe Festival earlier in the year to a sell out audience.
The films, starring some of South Australia's finest upcoming talent, tackle the stigma surrounding mental health and raise awareness about issues that young people face every day.
The Inside Your headspace film project features actors Tom Russell (AFI Nominee: Best Young Actor, Last Ride 2009), Ronan Banks (The Bugle's Call2014) and Patch Oliver (Anzac Girls 2014), who deliver three uniquely different stories.
The film Monday provides an insight into the common stress and anxiety associated with school life and exams, while Message Sent examines the consequences and dangers of social media, peer-pressure, and how the law plays a role.
The third film Zach is the hardest hitting in the series. This powerful film is about two young men, trying to combat bullying and mainstream pressure, while struggling to learn more about their identities and their relationship.
The idea for the 'Inside Your headspace' film project was sparked by the headspace Noarlunga Youth Reference Group and headspace Noarlunga staff. The youth reference group has diverse membership and they provide consultation and guidance to the headspace Noarlunga team in relation to a wide array of issues impacting young people in the community.
Since opening its doors in May 2012, headspace Noarlunga has helped more than 2500 young people and their families.
