It's Real

"It’s Real: College Students and Mental Health: is a documentary featuring the stories of six college students from across the country. The film reveals depression and other mental health conditions as they are commonly experienced by high school seniors, and shows how students can seek help for these conditions and successfully manage them. It can be used as part of an educational program designed to raise awareness about mental health issues experienced in college and to encourage help-seeking among college students.  The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) has developed this film to support colleges and universities in implementing suicide prevention as an integral part of their ongoing campus activities and services.

Workshop Features:

  • Illustrate how mental health conditions such as depression can interfere with a student’s ability to enjoy college and be productive in their work
  • Convey that depression and other mental health conditions are real illnesses that can be managed through specific treatments and interventions
  • Encourage and promote help-seeking behavior among college students
