Mind Matters - Understanding Mental Illness is an innovative curriculum containing video, print and CD-ROM resources and information, designed to educate middle school students, Grade 7 - 9, about mental illness in teens.

In this 7-and-a-half-minute video sample, you’ll find representative clips excerpted from the four videos produced, which average about ten minutes in length, and present profiles of real teenage subjects and their individual battles in their own words with one of four disorders: mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and ADHD. They talk about their experiences on camera; what it is like to be diagnosed; how the disorder affects their life; and how they—and their families—are contending with difficulties the disorder presents.

The program was developed in conjunction with Danya International, Inc., a leading private sector company producing public health communications and health product development, and The National Institutes of Mental Health, the underwriter for the curriculum. O-Zone provided media development & programming consultation, as well video production, and post-production services.
