Shoot a Short Video!

Help break the stigma around depression together! Shoot a short video and share a story of how depression has affected your life or the life of someone close to you! Follow the 4 simple steps below. The whole process takes only a couple of minutes!

 

Step 1

Select what kind of a story you would like to share
(you can share more than one video if you’d like).

 

YOUR STORY OF DEPRESSION:

  • Describe how does it feels to live with depression

  • How has depression affected your life?

  • Most valuable or important thing you did to help yourself with depression

  • How other people may have understood or misunderstood your situation

  • Your experiences with anti-depressants

  • Did you know how to best help a person living with depression?
 

Step 2

Record Your Story on Video

We suggest that you record your story by using your smartphone’s front-facing camera. Also feel free to record a video using your computer or ask someone to shoot the video of you, if that is what you prefer. Find a quiet spot where there is some light and your voice can be easily heard.  You are invited to say your name at the start of your video (Hi, my name is) or record an anonymous video. Aim to shoot a 30-90 second-long video.

Be Authentic

We are looking for original stories that others can relate to and there's no need to find a perfect background to share you story. You can shoot your story at home or work, or while waiting for a bus or a train.

 

Step 3

When you've finished shooting the video, send us the file using the Share My Story Link below.
