Young people attending a Derry youth project have made a powerful video urging peers with mental health issues to talk to someone rather than keep their problems bottled up inside them.

The video shows a small group of friends apparently having fun at Ebrington, before they split up to go their separate ways.

One of the young people then makes a lonely way across the Peace Bridge, before stopping to gaze into the river.

His friends then appear, telling him to talk to someone.
