This film aims to emphasise the importance of acceptance within our world of mental health. To acknowledge and understand others issues helps to overcome and comfort those struggling through the pain of an illness which may not be visible to all. The main focus of this being younger kids, for if not looked after, these states of mind may forever impact their future and ability to learn as well as adapt to societies ever-changing methods. Out of the few shown in the film, there are many more that need to be shown to the world so that we can help the children that influence the future of our planet.
