"I've picked myself up before, and I'll do it again."

Letters to Strangers partnered with some members of the Screen Actors Guild of New York to create a short film series where actors read aloud letters submitted by young people with mental health concerns around the world. Please take a few minutes to listen to & share a stranger's story - you just might be surprised by how much it resonates with your soul.
