Description Emotional literacy animations in Pitjantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra. Developed by and for Anangu living in the central desert region to keep language strong - in particular the language for talking about mental health.

This is the story of a man who is not thinking clearly: he can't control his anger and is always looking for a fight. One day, when things get really bad, his family step in and with the help of police they take him to the health clinic. With the help of medication from the clinic, support from his cousin and other family members, the man finds a way to feel happier and stronger again. This animation is in the Central Desert language of Pitjantjatjara - highlighting words for feelings. "Tell someone how you feel!"
