Taking a step toward seeing a professional for your mental health can be difficult. There are enough obstacles you can encounter: being afraid of confrontation and the outcome, shame, finding a professional with whom you have a connection, the price and what will be reimbursed?
Also, the stigma of “I’ll solve it myself” is still prevalent in our society, and we take the step to talk quite late. In addition, some of us don’t know exactly what it means to go to a professional. From my own experience, I know that it can help a lot.
I started this project out of curiosity about other people’s experiences. In my short film, you can listen to interviews that were conducted in a car because this setting makes it easier to talk about your feelings. You are listening to stories and opinions that are shared about this topic.
