Be Healthy Health Advocates

The Health Advocates in the AYPH Be Healthy Project created this animated film to highlight some of the issues they identified as a group. It consists of three short stories exploring three different stages of dealing with problems:

  • how difficult it is to recognise that you have a problem
  • the barriers young people can face when accessing help and
  • some of the issues young people experience when they do use services.

Inspired by the work of The Paper Cinema the characters were created using nothing but card, tracing paper, pencil and marker pens. The animation was filmed live and then all the Health Advocates got together in a London recording studio to record the dialog and voice over.
