Enough is Enough (a Mental Health & Suicide Awareness short-film)

The following is a short-film entitled Enough is Enough dedicated to the recent suicide victims in my local community. It follows the story of 2 teenage boys who don't know each other that each individually decide to end their life on the same bridge at the same time.

A lot of attention is now being brought to the mental health crisis in Saint John, New Brunswick and kind of gives us a peek into the pain of the world. It was only a few weeks ago that stickers appeared on the Reversing Falls bridge with the intentions of possibly saving a life. A short time later posters began to appear and a presence from a woman named Denise Crawley, who stayed on the bridge by her signs for an entire day talking to people and sending out love. This inspired many others to come out and show their support, some you see in this film. Just a couple days later an event, hosted by a woman named Jessica called the "Bridge of Hope" had over 1000 people line the bridge in solidarity to bring attention to the crisis.

'Enough is Enough' means everything to me and I hope it has at least some impact on you. Please, if you or someone you know is suffering don't be afraid to reach out. There is help out there, you matter and people WILL listen. Please don't be afraid to call or check out the websites below. YOU ARE IMPORTANT!
