Join us on Thursday, April 25th from 6-8PM at Mount Wachusett Community College for a free screening of the film Resilience followed by a panel discussion with area experts on mental health, trauma and building resiliency.
Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease. "The child may not remember but the body remembers." Resilience is a 1 hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress.
Following the film screening we invite you to a panel discussion with:
