You Don't Have to Suffer Alone

Two-time Academy Award® winner Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with Academy Award® winner Mel Gibson in The Beaver – an emotional story about a man on a journey to re-discover his family and re-start his life.

Plagued by his own demons, Walter Black was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can’t seem to get himself back on track…until a beaver hand puppet enters his life.

Drawing from the powerful relationships portrayed in The Beaver, the Social Action campaign will address the effects of mental illness and depression on individuals and their families and relationships, seek to de-stigmatize mental illness and depression, and provide tools and resources for families to support loved ones battling with an illness.
