Intent to Direct Form


Let us know that you are planning to participate!

This really helps us get an idea of how many submissions to expect and to get organized! Only one entry per film team please – this should be the lead participant. All film teams need to identify an adult advisor, someone that is not part of the official film team. This adult advisor should be part of the partnering middle school, high school, college, university, community-based organization, program, or club and, as the representative for that school or organization, will be asked to review the film and keep release forms on file.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email us:

  • Devin Saragosa-Harris: 858.324.4846 or
  • Jana Sczersputowski: 858.740.4381 or
  • Stan Collins: 619.518.2412 or

If you are experiencing an emotional crisis, are thinking about suicide or are concerned about a friend, call or text 988 for the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (24/7)
Directing Change is part of statewide efforts to prevent suicide, reduce stigma and discrimination related to mental illness, and to promote the mental health and wellness of students. These initiatives are funded by counties through the Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63) and administered by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), an organization of county governments working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
