In December 2016 filmmaker Elyse Fox released “Conversations with Friends” a short personal documentary in which she, for the first time, opened up about her depression. It was an instant success. A wave of young women reached out to her after seeing the film – looking for a mentor and a place to talk about mental health issues.
That need laid the foundation for Elyse’s next project: Sad Girls Club, a community that gives women a safe place to talk and share stories about their mental health journey. The the goal is to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues by sharing stories.
