1 in 4 of us live in The Box at some point. What are we going to do about it?

Julia James-Griffiths, 27

The Box project is a dance project that looks into the subject of depression and mental health issues.

Mental health is something that affects us all. No matter what age, culture or background, it can have a big impact on our lives and those we care about. This is why I believe the subject, and raising awareness and support for those who struggle with mental health issues, is very important.

Since the research for this project began in 2016, I have been exploring and questioning what the opinions and experiences can be when it comes to depression and mental health issues, and what can be done to help those who struggle with it. These findings have led to the production of this work. This short documentary expresses what this project involves, and the ideas and intentions behind it. As a result of this project, I hope to raise awareness and to tackle some of the stigma that can surround depression / mental health issues, whilst also providing support for those who struggle with it.
