IF YOU ASK ME: A Movie About the Upside of Mental Illness
New and experienced storytellers wanted!

Forget all the negative stuff. Is there an upside to mental illness? Are there positive things in your head you’d like to share with the world? And why hasn’t anyone asked you this before? Now is the chance to tell your story.

IF YOU ASK ME is an exciting new omnibus (a compilation of individual stories tied together) documentary movie that will feature people aged 13 to 30 creatively expressing their own vital experiences with mental health. The film will weave together personal perspectives with the goal of getting Canadians to think differently about mental illness. Consisting of a compilation of personal narratives expressed in any video format you wish – drama, diary, animation, music video, etc., – IF YOU ASK ME will push the conventional boundaries of the mental health and recovery conversations by igniting a whole new dialogue. And you get to start it!
