CONNECTING THE DOTS – GLEN STREET THEATRE DOCUMENTARY SCREENING AND PANEL DISCUSSION
What would it take to shift the dial on young people’s mental health?
We welcome you to join us for this theatre screening of Connecting the Dots by award winning Canadian director, Noemi Weis, with a panel discussion afterwards about youth mental health.
Mental health charities are doing it tough. The climate is one of concern, fear and HOPE for a better 2022 for young people. Social isolation, loneliness and unemployment are the top risks for suicide and, no thanks to COVID-19, our community has lost many of the natural protective factors for young people.
Do you remember what it was like to have your parents say to you “We have given you so much… I don’t understand, why aren’t you happy?”
Connecting the Dots is the first feature documentary of its kind to offer a raw and intimate look at youth mental health from a global perspective. With heart-felt poignant stories of lived experience, the film exclusively showcases young voices from around the world breaking barriers surrounding youth mental health through highly cinematic and character driven storytelling.
Connecting the Dots is emotional, reflective and hopeful. Our young leaders are speaking up. It’s time to.
Following the screening, the panel with young people, clinicians and director, Noemi Weis, will discuss some of the key themes from the film, including the local impact on our communities. You’ll also have a chance to join in and ask questions.
Please note, this film includes young people speaking openly about their mental health and the panel discussion may be discussing sensitive topics relating to mental health.
