Fact Not Fiction


A Multi Award-Winning Documentary made in Collaboration with Fact Not Fiction Films

This film is about Lucy Rayner’s life, and the work that her family has done since her death, to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression in young people.

LUCY – Breaking the Silence is a collaboration between the Fact Not Fiction Production Company and the Lucy Rayner Foundation, who raised £40,000 to enable the film to be completed and shown.

The short documentary was designed to be an educational tool, to help raise awareness of depression, anxiety and low self-esteem in young people.

The film highlights the importance of talking, and the main aim is to encourage young people to get talking about their feelings before it is too late, and thereby to hopefully save some lives.

The aim is to show the documentary in schools, colleges, universities and all other relevant audiences, so that young people can recognise the signs and symptoms in themselves, their friends and families, and will know what action they can take, where to go, and who can help them.

The Lucy Rayner Foundation would like to give thanks to all the generous donors who enabled them to bring this project to life. The donors are credited at the end of the film, which premiered before an invited audience at the Capitol Cinema in Horsham, Surrey, on Friday 9th March 2018.

The Lucy Rayner Foundation regards this short film as a perfect part of Lucy’s legacy.
