Short film highlights the importance of daily independence

Friday, July 18, 2014

Have you ever thought about all the little actions you complete every hour that make up your daily independence? From brushing your teeth, to drinking a cup of coffee – we often don’t realize the personal freedom we exercise every minute of our lives. Yet what if that was taken away from us? The video below pushes the viewer to consider how meaningful our little acts of daily independence really are, and how important it is that people with mental disabilities have that sense of independence as well. The short film was created for the 24th edition of Quebec’s Week of Intellectual Disability, and produced by a Canadian organization that works to promote the interests and needs of people with intellectual disabilities, and their families.
