Advocating Through Film

Listen Now On...


In today’s episode I had the pleasure to speak with Ella Greenwood. Ella is a 19 year old actress, director & producer based in the UK. At age 18 she wrote, directed and produced her first short film, Faulty Roots. This film, as well as her other films, are all based around mental health.
Ella opens up about her struggle with depression, why she decided to get into the entertainment industry along with why she is so passionate about breaking down the mental health stigmas surrounding teen mental health through her creations. Ella is also a member of the National Youth Theatre and is an ambassador for leading teen mental health charity Stem4. She was also awarded Positive Female Role Model Of The Year at the Darkus Magazine 2020 Awards.
