This Foundation has been established in memory of Alex Panton, who succumbed to the effects of severe depression at the age of 16.

"Hidden" short film premiere

On February 8th 2018, at the Camana Bay Cinema, the Alex Panton Foundation Premiered their short film “Hidden”, written by Kaylyn Bodden and produced by Pascal Pernix.

“Hidden” was created to build awareness around mental illness by highlighting how those suffering can be misunderstood and left with the feeling of being alone and to help spread key information about the mission of the foundation.

I couldn’t believe how much I could relate to the characters in this film. It was so real, honest and raw, it felt personal. 

But we’re not done yet. We need you!
