Virtual Film Showing

March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us for a FREE virtual film showing 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.

Now understood to be one of the leading causes of heart disease, cancer, substance abuse, and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. ACEs and Toxic Stress has become a growing concern not only in Tennessee, but also around the nation. Fortunately, experts and practitioners profiled in Resilience are proving that what is predictable is preventable.

Education about the negative longterm impacts of ACEs is crucial to our community’s wellbeing, and we encourage you to learn more about how you can build resiliency in the children around you! Click the link to access the film screening on the night of the event.
