In 2022, the Coalsack Media team has been working on a new children’s series that addresses mental health, behaviour and societal challenges that children face.

As a project very close to our hearts, the team used their experiences and personalities, explored mental and societal challenges they have been faced with since they were children, and came up with characters that represent their status.

 Through different experiences the characters learn to use their unique struggles as strengths as they learn about individualism and self-confidence.
