Each and Every Day

Each and Every Day is a documentary exploration of youth mental health through the eyes of young people, who have attempted suicide or have struggled with suicidal thoughts. The nine people featured, range in age from late-teens to early-thirties, and come from diverse backgrounds. They share not only their darkest moments and challenges, but also their recoveries and hard-won wisdom about what it means to build a life worth living. In addition to telling their personal stories, all the participants meet virtually, creating an online community to discuss mental health challenges. The film offers relatable and authentic portraits of young people dealing with suicide and emphasizes helping seeking and hope.
