The Directing Change Program and Film Contest is a suicide prevention program that is supported by the California Department of Education. Through this program, students are asked to create 60 second public service announcements on the topics of suicide prevention and mental health stigma reduction. Through the process of creating the films, students and staff learn about suicide prevention and mental health as learning objectives surrounding are incorporated into the submission categories of the film contest, giving students and staff the opportunity to critically explore these topics.
