Saturday May 4 - we host the screening of the video "Resilience." Dr. Andrew Bell from the Westchester county department of mental health will be on hand to lead a discussion on the adverse affects experiences of childhood trauma have on all our children. His colleagues Daniella Jackson and Marlene Furtick will be a part of the leaders team. This event is co-sponsored by the Westchester County department of mental health and the resilience coalition of Westchester county.
We will slant the conversation to pay particular attention to the trauma of systemic racism on children.
10am - 12 noon. Refreshments and networking time at the end.
