Game Changer is a short film drama for teenagers with special educational needs and disabilities. Laced with humour, it explores issues around relationships and sexual health in an engaging and informative way.
The film follows Juliet and Geoff as they begin to form a special relationship. We see them negotiate obstacles to their happiness at home, in the sensory garden at after-school club, and online in their favourite video game ‘Earth Guardians’.
The video has been designed to enable discussions in the classroom on a wide range of topics including: online safety, appropriate behaviour and touching, masturbation, independence, relationships and love, and sex and the law.
The drama also underlines how important it is to seek advice from trusted friends, family members and professionals.
Game Changer was commissioned by Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust. It was created by Catcher Media in creative consultation with young people and staff from Pool Hayes Academy and Elmwood School in Walsall and local health professionals. Funded by Walsall Council Public Health.
Game Changer is a Catcher Media Presentation for Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust.
