New koko film encourages conversation around mental health 

koko, a multi-award winning blog for teenage girls, has just launched a new film looking at mental health

koko Project Co-ordinator Meg Cannon said, ‘There’s a real gentleness and simplicity about this short film, but it packs a serious punch!

‘We really believe that it has the potential to bring a sense of hope and encouragement to those facing challenges with their mental health.’

koko, which stands for Keep On Keeping On, is a Girls’ Brigade England & Wales (GB) initiative. The film was launched at a GB conference last month.

The launch was part of a special session looking at how GB leaders can turn up the volume of hope on mental health – led by Nathan Jones, Founding Director of Teens in Crisis (TIC+), based in Gloucestershire.

Meg added, ‘Our hope is that this film will be used to continue the important conversation surrounding mental health.’


The film can be seen on the koko website http://www.thekokostory.com/ or via YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BZ3lzGj1Ww

Everything on the innovative koko site, a mission initiative from Girls’ Brigade Ministries, is created with teenage girls firmly in mind to help them explore life together – inspiring, challenging and encouraging them – and looking at tough issues such as self-harm, bereavement, friendship, and identity.
