Break the silence
At the Octavia Foundation we value that in today’s society mental health awareness is extremely important, especially to the younger generation as 75% of mental illnesses can start before a child reaches their 18th birthday*.
Our latest digital media project, Think. Make. Create. aims to encourage young people to speak openly about their emotional health and wellbeing and ‘break the silence’, while teaching them creative digital media skills in graphic design, film making, t-shirt printing, photography and animation.
