A group of students are creating a film to raise money for a mental health charity.

Altogether, 13 youngsters from Newham College in East Ham will be taking part in a community project, as part of a Prince’s Trust programme, to raise funds for Mind, a charity that supports people dealing with mental health issues.

Student, Faisal Khan, explained the initiative gave participants an opportunity to give back to the community.

The 21-year-old said: “Some of the people taking part have had issues surrounding mental health and there are so many people out there that suffer because of it so we want to raise awareness.

“In the film that we are creating people will talk about their own experiences and tell their stories and once it is completed we want to distribute it across schools and different organisations in the borough.
