Boys In Mind
Jigsaw. What is your Missing Peace?

Film & Campaign Description

Jigsaw is a stop-motion animation about friendship and finding your missing peace. The two friends explore what works for them in order to support their mental health. We wanted this film to directly appeal to young people, encouraging them to explore the tools we can all use to promote good mental health in a fun and relatable way. The voices you hear come from some young people and the animation was created by a group of talented young filmmakers from the Southwest - enjoy!

Boys In Mind

Boys in Mind works in partnership with children, young people and professionals in a range of settings to promote good mental health and prevent suicide, particularly among boys and young men. Our work is guided by our 3 P’s – Prevent, Promote and Participate

  • Prevent – Preventing suicide
  • Promote – Promoting positive mental health and positive images of boys and men
  • Participate – Encouraging active participation of children and young people

We strongly believe that

No one should feel ashamed of: –

  • Talking about their feelings
  • Asking for help when they’re feeling down or struggling
  • Being honest
  • Being themselves

However, despite much work to challenge the stigma around mental health, many boys and young men are still unwilling and unable to open up about their difficulties and get help. They suffer in silence and tragically some go on to take their lives.
