Mental Health at West High School

More than a film:

Our vision is to give students a platform to share what they’re going through and what they need.

We believe that raising awareness about mental health and inspiring dialogue is critical.


The collaboration:

This project will be a collaboration and learning experience for youth to learn about storytelling.

Drew Plasterer is West student, creative visionary, and passionate storyteller.

Amanda Lipp is a filmmaker and former board member of the National Alliance on Mental Illness(NAMI).

Your help!

We can’t do this alone. We’ll be launching a $75,000 fundraising campaign so we can begin this project.

  • Produce the short film (10-20 min.)
  • Form a West Youth Advisory Board
