What happens to us, especially in childhood, matters.
Join us to watch and discuss Resilience, the 2016 yet still timely one-hour documentary film about the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and the ways these experiences are retained in our bodies for long-range health impacts.
Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. There is hope, however, as experts and practitioners profiled in Resilience are proving: what’s predictable is preventable.
Following the film, Dr. Andrew Bell, Program Director of Community Support Services at Westchester County Department of Community Mental Health (DCMH), will lead a discussion on trauma, resilience and what we can do as individuals, families, and communities to heal.
Complimentary light refreshments will be available.
