Our Turn To Talk

OUR TURN TO TALK features high school senior Anastasia Vlasova whose obsession with Instagram led to a full-blown eating disorder. Silence and shame followed. Anastasia discovered that once she started talking openly about her mental health, she started healing. That inspired her to launch a podcast and travel across the country to invite other teens to share their own stories about how depression, anxiety, racism, LGBTQ discrimination, and the COVID-19 pandemic are taking a toll – on them and on their whole generation. Driven by the evidence that storytelling saves lives, Anastasia and her peers show us the courage and power of something as simple as talking.
