Beyond Words

This short video addresses depression and how it’s immensely trivialized and downplayed. It also reveals the power that words have over actions people take.

Director: Sharon Nyarko

Sharon Nyarko is a 19 year old independent digital storyteller and second-year undergraduate Neuroscience specialist at the University of Toronto. Her research interests include brain function, biological basis of mental illness, and the development of more effective support schemes for people with mental health disorders. ‘Beyond Words’ is Sharon's first publicized project as Director and Producer borne out of a passion to challenge the status quo of socio-cultural misconceptions about the scope, causes and effects of mental illness, and to generate relevant discussions and solutions.
