Director Statement

Cyanide was, and still is, important for me to write and release especially because of what I’ve seen people (including myself and my own family & friends) go through with mental illness, addiction and/or abuse. When someone dismisses or downplays even the smallest thing that could become catastrophic when it’s something major that one might be struggling with. I released the video on YouTube with links and phone numbers to any help line I could possibly think of, and some to address specific “hot topics “ such as gender identity & lgbtqia+ to religious and ethnic specific sites as well as a few for runaways, and the hotline & text number for hum Trafficing too.
