"Whether it's anxiety, depression, bullying, addiction, poverty, or identity issues, everyone experiences struggles that affect emotional well-being. In Bloom aims to reduce the stigma around youth mental health, and encourage creativity, community, and generosity among Toronto's teens."
Nicola Spunt, Producer
