About glow media
There are many educational video and book series addressing mental health and other sensitive issues on the market today. This is a good thing because teens are notoriously fickle. A book or pamphlet that resonates with one teen experiencing a mental health issue, won't necessarily resonate with others. What makes glow media's offerings unique is our integration of music, realistic characters and dialogue, and authentic storylines. The films come with resource guides compiled by leading experts in the mental health field, ensuring that our data is both current and accurate. Through grants and donations glow media seeks to provide our short films and accompanying resources FREE OF CHARGE. For more information, please visit http://www.glowmedia.org.
