We are dedicated to the public not have to suffer in silence. Depression and anxiety are real and should be treated as seriously as any other illness.
Together, we can break the longstanding stigma of mental illness in the Cayman Islands. We are strong advocates of our message.
You are not alone. If you are struggling with a mental illness, seek help. There are people out there willing to lend a helping hand.
The Alex Panton Foundation is a not-for-profit with the primary objective of raising awareness of mental illnesses affecting children and young adults in the Cayman Islands with a particular focus on anxiety and depression.
This Foundation has been established in memory of Alex Panton, who succumbed to the effects of severe depression at the age of 16.
The Alex Panton Foundation aims to provide hope and resources to friends, family, teachers, classmates and careers to help save the lives of children and young adults struggling with mental illness.
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.
As a non-profit foundation, we rely on donations to help fund our events.
We are only able to do all the important work that we do on a daily basis thanks to the support of our partners.
