Overdose Awareness Day

Posted on Thursday August 13, 2020 at 09:24AM

Join Leduc County Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) for an online screening of Resilience, the Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope. The film is a documentary that chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease. Resilience reveals that toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. Resilience also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress.

This online film screening is a registered event for adults 18+.
