MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

An ongoing project at Engage is an attempt to provide information that lies at the intersection of law and mental health with the aim to increase understanding mental health problems and increase compassion for those who suffer from such problems and to, ultimately, encourage the passing and implementation of legislation that acknowledges and deals with mental health issues, an area of human health that is often forgotten, belittled or dismissed. To that end, we have currently developed a video on anxiety that works as a primer by providing, in simple language, information on the symptoms, solutions and common misconceptions of anxiety and how to deal with someone who suffers from it.

 

TWO FINGER TEST

Engage produced a video highlighting the still used Two Finger Test to determine whether a rape victim consented to sex; this archaic test that is not only a violation of rape victims but also does not provide results that can be used to prove or disprove consent.
