Elyse Fox

Filmmaker Elyse Fox opened up about mental health in Conversations with Friends, a short film about her experience with depression. It was off the back of the Conversations success that Fox founded Sad Girls Club, an Instagram and IRL community that creates safe spaces for women of colour to open up about their mental health. Through group art therapy, poetry slams, meditation retreats, and more, the real-life meet-ups in cities across the US have fostered a community for over 1,000 women. And online, Fox is working one Instagram post at a time to destigmatise the way we talk about depression and more.
