Jon’s struggle with his mental health is illuminated through his relationships. A short dramedy about the everyday impacts of toxic masculinity and men’s unchecked mental health.

Director’s Vision

The stigmatization of poor mental health is common among men who in turn poison their relationships. Men should hold themselves accountable for the way their mental health affects those around them. By creating more of a conversation about the repercussions of ingrained toxic masculinity and encouraging self-help among those who need it most, we can put an end to so many toxic and otherwise abusive relationships. In Lizard Brain’s dramatization of my own story, I humbly hope to contribute to that conversation.
