Health is not Everything

    • set 8 items

    Life with a serious health challenge is not easy. Yet humans are stronger than they think. The experiences of different individuals are shared through these films: trying to help a wonderful boy with behavioral issues survive school; trying to overcome a drug addiction; trying to find a meaning to your life with disability; surviving female genital mutilation; then also the stories of those who would like to help, such as nursing students.
