Fifty percent of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by the age of 14. In today’s digital society, there is the ability to educate and prepare children for if they or someone around them starts to suffer with mental illness. Yet, for younger audiences, there is almost no exposure provided in the media. I believe this to be a huge failing to children and teens. I aim to play my part in resolving the issue by creating a fictional story that informs younger viewers on mental illness.
