to mark MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK, we’ll be watching little miss sunshine, co-directed by Valerie
Mental Health Awareness Week runs from Monday 10 May to Sunday 16 May 2021. This year, join the fight for mental health.
During this pandemic, millions of us have experienced a mental health problem, or seen a loved one struggle. And we’ve seen that the support we all need just isn’t out there.
For them, for us and for you – we must take this chance to step up the fight for mental health. That means fighting for change, for fairness, for respect and for life-changing support.
The theme for the 2021 Mental Health Awareness Week is nature.
For #MHAW, the Birds Eye View Team will be watching a film a day.
Today’s film, chosen by Simone Glover, one of the BEV team, is
Little Miss Sunshine (2006)
Toni Collette, Steve Carell, Greg Kinnear, and Alan Arkin star in this wonderful, warm comedy about hitting the road for seven-year-old Olive Hoover (Abigail Breslin) who wants to compete in the Little Miss Sunshine pageant in far-off California. It takes the combined efforts of her dysfunctional family to make it possible.
The film addresses the Uncle’s (played by Steve Carrell) attempt to take his own life.
