Local youth mental health group screening the film Resilience

New scientific research has shown homelessness, drug addiction, obesity, and even cancer and heart disease are linked to early childhood trauma.

All families face some challenges, but we can help support the children we care about through life’s stressors. It turns out there are simple things caring adults can do to prevent stressful events turning into toxic stress with lifelong consequences.

The film Resilience: The biology of stress and the science of hope looks at how breakthrough science is addressing these age-old problems.
