How do adverse childhood events affect the mental and physical health of children? How might these events have affected you as an adult? How can we use this information to understand and improve our community?
Join a screening and discussion of RESILIENCE, a one-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. Extremely stressful experiences in childhood are now understood to alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior, increasing the likelihood for conditions as diverse as heart disease, cancer, substance abuse and depression. Join us to learn more and explore how resilience can be supported and strengthened and how our community can respond.
This screening and discussion is presented in partnership with the Resilience Coalition, the New Rochelle Council of Community Services, New Rochelle Community Network, New Rochelle City School District, New Rochelle Municipal Housing Authority, New Rochelle Youth Bureau, and the New Rochelle Public Library.
