“…Secondary school principals are painfully aware of the emotional and psychological trauma which often manifests itself as school-age victims grapple with a problem (sexual abuse) that is too big for them. HUSH 2 is a statement that our society can no longer 'ignore' the deafening cries of children as they suffer at the hands of adults who should know better. It is a "must see" for all persons who interface with students in Caribbean school.”

Mathew D. Farley- Principal of Garrison Secondary School, Barbados

“As Guidance Counselor, I highly recommend "Hush 2" as a medium for revealing hurts caused by incest and sexual violence, uncovering the pain and bringing it into the open for greater understanding of the trauma and emotional pain of the victim, most of all, promoting and fostering healing and wholeness by providing a 'second chance'. The provision of counselors at the end of the film was vital in helping students to begin the healing process.”

Ruth Hinds-Guidance Counselor of Deighton Griffith Secondary School
