Day 23 #ElfieAdvent – One Thing

On Day 23 of our Elfie Advent Calendar we are revisiting a very powerful video created by clients at Action Mental Health a number of years ago that we hope will help people who find the festive season difficult to cope with. Our clients from AMH New Horizons in Ards share the ‘One Thing’ they have found that helps them negotiate the anxieties and depression that hinder their mental health.

From finding comfort in their families and loved ones, to walking outdoors, playing with their dog or using art as an outlet, their experiences will resonate with many – this year especially, when countless others are living with the uncertainty of the pandemic. What is your ‘One Thing?’

Clients from AMH New Horizons developed, scripted, filmed and acted in this short film which portrays some the difficulties of living with mental health issues.
