Our Mission

We believe every student and their family should have free access to quality mental health education. It is foundational and directly impacts our physical health, academic achievements, relationships, and safety.

Guiding Principles

Educating Through Stories

We support stories that inspire social change and positive action. The Creative Coping Toolkit is an award-winning and film and evidence-based mental health literacy program that provides Tier 1 and Tier 2 strategies. It is designed to bring about deeper learning, engagement, and positive impact to address anxiety, bullying, social media addiction, resilience, trust and kindness.

These programs have been meticulously crafted and designed to promote life skills and empathy by providing an immersive experience that can foster positive change for the whole community.

 Measuring Impact

People love movies. Stories cut through cultural stigma and are far reaching. We know that film is even more transformative and powerful when watched within a community.

We support free access for students, educators and their families to the Creative Coping Toolkit, a year-long, film and evidence-based mental health literacy program for schools.

We are COPPA, CIPA and FERPA compliant. We measure impact and share the data. We also partner with institutions that have helped measure long-term impacts.

Expanding Access 

We help subsidize the cost of access to these programs for schools. Since 2011, Impactful Fund, formerly Indieflix Foundation, has worked with philanthropic partners and education partners to provide film-based mental health programming to underserved, overlooked, rural, ethnically diverse communities and Title I schools, that often struggle to get mental health support.  If your school or community would like to learn more or donate, please reach out to us at
