New! Enter Directing Change 2019

All SDCCD students are invited to "Direct Change" by submitting a 60-second film to change minds about mental illness and prevent suicide. This video contest is sponsored by the Mental Health Counseling Center, in partnership with Grossmont College Mental Health, through a grant from the Foundation for California Community Colleges. 

  • Video submissions are due on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 by midnight 
  • Cash prizes of $500, $250, and $125 will be awarded to first, second and third place videos
  • No professional video equipment or experience is necessary - videos are judged primarily on content - it's about the message!
  • All students submitting videos will be recognized at an award ceremony and video screening on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at Grossmont College. This event will be open to the entire community and will feature a brief training on preventing suicide and free pizza!
