Movie bids to tackle men­tal health stigma

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

AN Irish youth char­ity is to host the pre­miere of an award-win­ning film that high­lights the coun­try’s grow­ing sui­cide epi­demic.

CIY, which has bases in Dublin, Belfast and around the world, will host the first screen­ings of Un­seen.

It stars ac­tors Des­mond East­wood and Bob Car­ley and ex­plores the ef­fects of sui­cide on our cul­ture, par­tic­u­larly on young­sters.

CIY’S Euro­pean di­rec­tor Jasper Ruther­ford said: “This is a pow­er­ful tool to help young peo­ple and young adults talk about their own men­tal health.”

Un­seen pre­mieres on March 5 in Dublin, on March 7 in Lim­er­ick and March 8 in Belfast.
