A mental health charity off Holloway Road is urging people to vote for its “hard-hitting” film about depression so it can make the shortlist for a prestigious award.
The #LetMeTalk film by SANE, a national charity in Chillingworth Road, has been nominated for next year’s Charity Film Awards, but needs more votes to progress through the competition.
The film was released ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week in May – it shows a man unable to call for help while he’s forcibly silenced by an intruder.
This metaphor shows how sufferers struggle to talk about their depression.
#LetMeTalk ends on the line: “Your depression doesn’t want you to talk. But we do.”

Marjorie Wallacem chief exec at SANE, said: “We had a fantastic response to #LetMeTalk when it launched in May. People described the film as hard-hitting and a realistic representation of how the nature of depression can discourage people from talking about their illness. We really hope people in Islington will support the film and give us their vote by visiting the Charity Film Awards website.”
You can vote for #LetMeTalk until December 14 by visiting: charityfilmawards.com/videos/letmetalk.
