Raising Resilience to host ‘Screenagers’ doc screening

Raising Resilience, in partnership with Bainbridge Youth Services and filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston will host a special screening of Ruston’s new documentary, “Screenagers: The Next Chapter.”

The screening is 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Bainbridge Cinemas.

From the director of “Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age” comes this second installment about “Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience” and helping young people thrive in our screen and stress-filled world.

The director will be present for a Q&A session following the screening.

Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help parents flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression. Viewers follow Delaney as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional well-being and sets out to understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how parents and schools can empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.

The movie is recommended for parents and educators of children of all ages, and teens in fifth grade and up.

Tickets are $15; visit www.raisingresilience.org to learn more and register.

A pool of free tickets available at Helpline House on a first-come, first-served basis.
