Kaylen Frances is a young actor and film maker. His short mental Health Awareness Film features a young black man who is struggling with depression.
According to leading mental health charity MIND, evidence shows that Black men are far more likely than others to be diagnosed with severe mental health problems and are also far more likely to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act. However, up until 11 years old, Black boys don't have poorer mental health than others of their age.
There are multiple reasons for this including stigma, cultural barriers, and systemic discrimination, all of which are more directly experienced by Black boys and young Black men as they get older.

Money in Colour is a series of Free workshops in the creative space, funded by sponsorships. They teach a range of creative skills including vocal training, Jewellery making, Glass Art, Film, Illustration, Performance Poetry etc. along side the much needed life and work-ready skills including money management, clarity and articulation, sales and customer services.
Young people facie a volatile world, so our workshops not only give participants foundational creative skills but also help prepare them emotionally for further education, self employment, or jobs that will enable them to make a positive impact in their communities.
Our facilitators are not only skilled but have a good understanding of, as well as first hand experience of the additional challenges the participants may face, such as racism, in an already competitive job market and business environment. Uniquely, this enables participants to draw on lessons that are both relevant, practical and authentic.
