Campaign: To get more people talking about death

My mum passed away when I was 12-years-old. I didn't know how to react or handle the situation, I couldn't understand why so many people were hugging me - I just blocked it out and pretended it never happened. 

 

I don't want other young people to feel like they must suppress their feelings, I want more people to feel like they can talk about death without it being a taboo subject. 

 

Opening up about what has happened to you is the best medicine. I hope, after watching my film, people will feel more comfortable expressing themselves and sharing memories of loved ones who have passed.
